Welcome to ‘An Introduction to Youth Sexual Health Promotion’, brought to you by The National Youth Health Programme in partnership with HSE Sexual Health and Crisis Pregnancy Programme. This e-learning is a building block for you to strengthen your capacity in supporting young people to develop their sexual health.
Sexual health is a major component of a young person’s health and wellbeing as, behaviours, attitudes, norms, relationships, and practices are developed during adolescence. It is therefore vital that, where young people are interacting, they are provided the opportunity to receive good sexual health education and the tools needed to develop good relationships and safeguard their own sexual health. This e-learning is a stepping-stone to that journey.
Please note that this e-learning will not provide you with activities to run with the young people you work with, rather, build your capacity, knowledge, and confidence in the area of youth sexual health.
