Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week (SRH Week) 2019 is just around the corner! This year, it will take place from February 11-15 with the national theme of: Sexual health at all ages.
Sexuality and sexual health are integral to well-being throughout our lives. Everyone, no matter the age, is entitled to affirming health care, and that includes sexual health.This year’s campaign will address sexual health at different stages of life, from children and sex-positive parenting all the way to aging and sexuality. We deserve to be treated as the complex individuals that we are. This means recognizing that from beginning to end, we are sexual beings in need of accurate information about our sexual health.
