September issue of Sexual Health, Reproductive Health & HIV Policy eBulletin
Posted on: September 27 2018, 11:41 am

The September issue of the Sexual Health, Reproductive Health & HIV Policy eBulletin is now out (click link below)

https://mailchi.mp/fsrh/sexual-health-reproductive-health-hiv-policy-ebulletin-september-2018

Items to look out for in this month’s issue include: publication of 2017 HIV data confirming that new HIV diagnoses in the UK are at the lowest point since 2000, having fallen for a second year in a row; the recent Government announcement that it will legalise the home-use of the abortion drug misoprostol in England by the end of the year; new Select Committee inquiries into sexual health, abortion law in Northern Ireland and health and social care needs of LGBT communities; an audit report from the Advisory Group on Contraception (AGC) showing almost half of all councils have reduced or closed sites delivering contraceptive services since 2015; new contraceptive services Return on Investment (ROI) tool from Public Health England (PHE) providing evidence that every £1 spent on contraceptive services saves £9 across the public sector; and results of an FPA survey on sexual consent published as part of Sexual Health Week (this week! 24-30 September).

In this month’s eFeature two young people, Toby and Elise, give us their take on the DfE’s new draft guidance to support the introduction of compulsory RE in primary schools and RSE in secondary schools.

The eBulletin is supported by a coalition of sexual health, reproductive health and HIV professional bodies and charities led by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (FSRH). It covers the broad spectrum of sexual health issues including those relating to contraception, sexually transmitted infections and HIV.

The eBulletin is available free to all those working in clinical services, public health, commissioning, primary care, voluntary and community organisations and other related areas.  SIGN UP now ( http://fsrh.us8.list-manage1.com/subscribe?u=e7045e9fd6db30d4ed82ccfb0&id=38e3eb61fe) to get future issues delivered direct to your inbox
