What Is Sexual Health?
Looking after your sexual health is an important part of life.
This section of the site gives you general information to help you look after your sexual health.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) definition of sexual health is "A state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being related to sexuality; not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be protected, respected and fulfilled".
