Sexual Health

Wirral 2014-15 Sexual Health Needs Assessment (SHNA)

The central question the SHNA sought to answer was, “What needs to change to improve the sexual and reproductive health of people in Wirral?” The SHNA was led by Wirral Public Health Team and took a whole-system approach, looking at sexual health issues primarily from the perspective of local people as well across organisations. As sexual health is a sensitive subject, Wirral Public Health Team developed and worked within an ethical framework and thorough methodology.

The (SHNA) explored patterns of behaviour, beliefs and social factors relating to sexual health in order to highlight where change is needed to improve the sexual and reproductive health of local people. The findings are provided in a series of documents (see links below).


Please note:
 this SHNA does not cover domestic abuse or child sexual exploitation (CSE). Please see the 
separate section of the JSNA for information on CSE and Domestic Abuse
