Sexual Health

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.
