Young peoples' sexual health: a framework for policy debate

Abstract

This paper seeks to stimulate debate about policy directions for sexual health promotion for youth.

We then propose ways that policy-makers might help to reduce these risks not just by improving access to high quality information and services but also by creating health-enabling environments that facilitate young people efforts to protect and enhance their sexual health. In this context, we pay particular attention to the impact of home, community, and macro-social social factors (e.g., poverty, discrimination, social exclusion) on the sexual behaviour of yout
