Sexual health in Africa
[Newshook: World Health Day, 7 April 2007]

Sexual and reproductive health services are vital in preventing unnecessary deaths, of both men and women. Yet - as World Health Day approaches - it's clear that governments and health organisations are still failing to prioritise spending on these services.


Even in countries in which abortion is illegal, women continue to seek it out, pay for it, or even carry it out themselves. The consequences can be devastating.


Getting men involved in sexual health is seen as the key to success for both men and women. So what is stopping men from using health services?


In Uganda opinion is divided on whether the best message is to recommend young people abstain from sex or to give them contraceptive advice.


Good sexual and reproductive health services enhance public health and improve quality of life. Journalists can play a key role in getting these issues debated publicly. This briefing explains some of the key issues and how journalists can use research as a source for stories.
