Created by a San Francisco based group of adolescent health providers and advocates, this resource provides tools for delivering sexual and reproductive health care services. There is an emphasis on health sexuality and health relationships.

The new Sexual Health Module is an updated and expanded version of the 2003 Sexual Health-CA Version. The new module champions a paradigm shift from a deficit/risk based perspective to one that embraces adolescent sexuality as a positive and normative in this stage of development. This comprehensive guide:

  • Focuses on healthy sexuality and healthy relationships.
  • Integrates information regarding the sexual health of all young men and women, LGBT youth, and youth with dis-abilities.
  • Is designed for primary care providers and is applicable to many others including school-based and youth program providers.
  • Is written from a national perspective.
  • Is updated with links to the most current evidence based research.
  • Includes many unique resources in the format of handouts for youth and families.
