Advisory Committee on Family Planning Sexual Health Education Survey
The Advisory Committee on Family Planning Sexual Health Education Survey investigated parental attitudes toward sexual health education in the province of Saskatchewan between October 2006 and February 2007. Survey results provide insight into Saskatchewan parents’ ideas about sexual health education, their attitudes and expectations, and their perceptions of their own knowledge and comfort with providing sexual health education to their school-aged children. The findings provide a basis for discussion regarding current school-based sexual health education approaches and whether these approaches are meeting the needs of Saskatchewan families with school-aged children.
Are You Positive You’re Negative? Protect Yourself and Others. Get Tested.
Rates of adolescent pregnancy and STIs in Saskatchewan are among the highest in Canada. The number of individuals testing positive for HIV in Saskatchewan is almost twice the Canadian average. These high rates are of concern because adolescent pregnancy is associated with poorer outcomes for the mom and the baby. Likewise, if STIs and HIV are not treated, they can cause serious health issues for males, females, and unborn babies. Adolescent pregnancy, STIs, and HIV can be prevented with proper contraception use, testing, and treatment.
This poster was created to promote further awareness of the need for STI and HIV testing in Saskatchewan and to highlight the importance of contraceptive use.SKU: 7-016
