Sexual and Reproductive Health
Sexual health is about wellbeing, not just services: education, personal capacity and resilience, good relationships and preventative actions are as important as the provision of high quality sexual and reproductive health services.
It is important that our resident population have knowledge, access to information and services, and choice, in relation to their sexual health needs. These needs will be different for everyone, influenced by an individual's age, sexual orientation, gender identity, culture, experiences and personal circumstances across the life course
We will ensure that this strategy and its action plans are closely linked to other strategies and plans that also impact sexual health and wellbeing, for example the Cheshire West and Chester Substance Misuse Strategy. In addition, in July 2022 the Government published the first Women’s Health Strategy for England which seeks to address inequalities in delivery of women’s health services, which will impact on the future delivery of sexual health services.
