Sexual Health Top 10: Our recommendations to promote sexual health in Nova Scotia

Right now, Nova Scotians are engaged in important conversations about our province's future - about our health, our education, our safety, the welfare of our youth, seniors, and most vulnerable citizens. Sexual health can and should be part of these conversations.

Be sure to check out the website sexualhealthmatters.ca to see a scrapbook of news about sexual health from the past two years. We hope this serves as a reminder of how issues relating to sexual health can affect our lives and our province.
