Sexual health JSNA

The sexual health joint strategic needs assessments (JSNA) outlines the strategic public health goals in Redcar and Cleveland

Sexual Health is a key Local Authority and Public Health priority area as it can have a significant impact on the population, the communities and individuals across Tees.

Poor sexual health can be a consequence of and associated with other vulnerabilities (e.g. drug and alcohol use), coercion, exploitation and abuse, leading to poor short and long term outcomes.

Deprivation and social exclusion also impact on sexual health, with a higher burden of disease in populations who live in more deprived areas.
