Sexual Health

Did you know?

  • According to a survey on Sexual Health of Adolescents and Young Adults in the US published in March 2013, nearly half (47%) of high school students reported having had sexual intercourse1
  • Almost half of newly diagnosed STDs account among 15-24 year olds2

We believe it is important for teens to understand risks involved in being sexually active and how to make the wisest decisions for themselves. Research shows that when provided with the right information and resources, adolescents will take responsibility for their sexual and reproductive health. Parental values also can shape responsible choices.  The sites below provide great sexual health resources for teens, parents and healthcare providers:
