Participation in consultation for the Sexual Health Strategy 2023 – 2028
The newly created sexual health strategy describes a vision for the continuing work to improve the overall sexual health of people in County Durham, improve access to sexual health services, promote healthy sexual behaviour, reduce rates of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), unintended pregnancies and reduce health disparities. It sets out why sexual health is important and outlines County Durham’s vision and priority areas over the next five years. It has been developed in partnership with organisations that deliver services and supported by community and voluntary sector organisations and County Durham people.
The Sexual Health Strategy is now available for a six week public consultation. The strategy is aimed at the many professionals that support the day-to-day work of the needs as described in the priority areas in the strategy. We are currently consulting with the wider public as well as people directly affected by this strategy, support workers and relevant organisations, as well as the views of the wider work force and residents of County Durham.
