Royal Australia College of Physicians: Sexual and Reproductive Health Care for Young People, Position Statement

The Royal Australian College of Physicians (RACP) has recently launch a position statement on Sexual and Reproductive Health Care for Young People.

The position statement calls for young people aged between 12 and 24 years in Australia and New Zealand to have great access to sexual and reproductive health care and education.

It can often be difficult to advocate for prioritising youth sexual health as part of holistic wellbeing for young people in an environment of competing demands and limited funding. The RACP position statement can provide a further source of evidence-based support when advocating for the importance of accessible and youth-friendly relationship and SHBBV education and care for young people.

The position statement also provides a number of recommendations to Government, health professionals and services, and policy and legislative change to support young people to access education, information and appropriate sexual health care and support.

You can read more about the position statement recommendations and download a copy from the RACP Website.
