What is sexual health and why is positive sexual health important?

Do you feel confused or unsupported when it comes to your sexual identity?

Are you having difficulty talking to your loved ones about your sexuality?

Sexual health is important for everyone’s physical and psychological well-being. Having positive sexual health involves not only looking after your physical well-being, but also includes the right to healthy and respectful relationships, access to health services that are safe and inclusive, and living your life free from discrimination, stigma, coercion and violence. Sometimes the negative events we experience can create barriers to positive sexual health, impact our self-esteem, and prompt internal conflict, having a detrimental effect on our psychological well-being.
