CDC Report on a Public Health Approach for Advancing Sexual Health in the United States

CDC-National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP)

In April 2010, NCSD participated a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) consultation on "A Public Health Approach for Advancing Sexual Health in the United States: Rationale and Options for Implementation." The meeting generated a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and feedback. The report provides a summary of the meeting--highlighting key presentations, panel discussions, and recommendations by meeting participants--which will assist those in the field interested in using a sexual health framework to normalize dialogue around sexuality and sexual behavior, enhance educational and preventive services, and improve health outcomes. A copy of the report is available below.
