What is Sexual Health?

Sexual Health is not merely the absence of disease, but is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being related to sexuality. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.

(World Health Organization, 2006)

Therefore, our programs and services strive to value and promote respect for all differences.
