Sexual Health

  • Sexuality includes physical, ethical, social, spiritual, psychological, and emotional dimensions and is a natural, healthy part of being human.
  • Individuals can express their sexuality in varied ways.
  • Sexual relationships should be reciprocal, based on respect, and should never be coercive or exploitative.
  • Individuals, families, and society benefit when young people are able to discuss sexuality with their peers, parents and/or trusted adults.
  • Young people develop their values about sexuality as part of becoming adults.
  • Young people need access to information about sexual and reproductive healthcare services.
