ASSIGNMENT-PUBLIC HEALTH UNIT 6 NOREEN MAKAYIRI In the days and times we are living in, everyone has a right to know information, be it relating to the general public or specified groups of people. I would like to investigate the links between young people and sexual health. I would like to discuss in great about what sexual health is and how it can be of either good or bad influence to young people and the entire population at large.l would like to define sexual health as the capacity to enjoy as well as express sexuality with no exploitations and oppressions either physically or emotionally. (Fpa policy statement) to qualify the above statement I would like to quote a few statements stated on the same article. These include; the fact that young people need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to develop sexual behaviour that is safe and enjoyable .As it was cited earlier it is noted that young people have the right to high quality, appropriate and relevant sexual relationships education from nursery school on wards. ...read more.


who could not even go up to the GCSE`s would and end up engaging in if they see they have a sole responsibility of keeping food on the table for about two other siblings who unfortunately will be under her wings every time because the parents would not be responsible enough. The worst thing that could happen to them would be to be sexually active at such a tender age in trying to cope with the faults of the world. This will seemingly be the only choice out of a few that might be in existence so if they decide to embark on it for simple reasons that it's the quickest way to get cash then they will indulge.

As long as some information is left to public, we will note that there will be avoidances of a lot of mishaps that can be available. These include abortion, stillbirths, and some sexually transmitted infections that would catastrophically destroy an individual's life. An area of concern is drug use with these kinds of people as they will be influenced by a lot of pressure from the world, it will be like second nature to them to deal with drugs and in that way addiction will come by and abuse. An awareness campaign should be conducted from all walks of life. The use of public facilities like walk in centres, Gum centres, surgeries, family planning centres and public journals will always be of great help if they are fully utilised regarding sexual health. This will help protect people from all kinds of diseases, unwanted pregnancies and the misuse of drugs in the society. ...read more.
