Sexual Health Awareness and Guidance week runs 12-16 February 2018.
Led by VP Community and Welfare - Sian and VP Sports and Health - Erin
The campaign has three main goals:
- To raise awareness of STIs and how best to prevent them
- To highlight the importance of the issues surrounding consent and sexual assault
- To promote healthy attitudes towards sexual relationships.
No matter your gender, sexuality or opinions about sex, it is important to educate yourself. Whether that involves being aware of how to be safe, getting tested or learning how to start open and honest conversations about sex; we have found some useful places you can go for information.
