Sexual Health Month

In honor of World Sexual Health Day on September 4, ASHA marks September as Sexual Health Month each year.

Each year, the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) celebrates World Sexual Health Day on September 4th, and the theme for the 2021 observation is Turn it on: Sexual health in a digital world.

WAS says they chose the motto “Turn it on” to ignite awareness of sexual health and sexual rights and enforcing them, as there are also many violations and abuses of sexual rights in the digital space. WAS is also highlighting the digital divide that leaves many in low-resource settings unable to access digital platforms and information online.

Check out the resources offered by WAS on Sexual Health Day and also visit ASHA’s page onUnderstanding Sexual Health.

Throughout the month ASHA will offer expanded sexual health resources including podcasts, fact sheets, and other online resources:
