Sex education in the home, school and other settings is vital in preventing crisis pregnancy and the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
Improving sexual health and relationships knowledge is a key goal of the Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme.
The Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme runs and funds a range of sexual health information and education campaigns. The campaigns are targeted to groups identified by research as having particular sexual health information needs, such as children and adolescents, 18-24 year olds, women aged 35-55 and parents, as well as early school leavers, young people who have experienced first sex before 17 years, and other minority groups.
