Every child has a right to comprehensive sexual health education and access to sexual health medical care. Sexual health knowledge is an important contributing factor to the health and well-being of Canadian youth (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2008). HPEPH partners with school communities and educators to ensure that this education is accessible and meaningful to all children.
Due to uncertainty about the Health and Physical Education's Human Development and Sexual Health components, Hastings Prince Edward Public Health is continuing to provide curriculum support for the revised 2015 Ontario Edition. These supports can be used and adapted at the discretion of the teacher to ensure the lessons meet the needs of their students and curriculum expectations.
