Sexual & Reproductive Health Awareness Week: February 11-15

Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week (SRH Week) 2019 is just around the corner! This year, it will take place from February 11-15 with the theme sexual health at all ages. This year’s campaign will address sexual health at different stages of life, from children and sex-positive parenting all the way to aging and sexuality. We deserve to be treated as the complex individuals that we are. This means recognizing that from beginning to end, we are sexual beings in need of accurate information about our sexual health.

Nine Circles will be sharing social media content on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram throughout the week and will be sharing content from SERC & Action Canada for Sexual Health & Rights. They’ll have blog posts written by community-based organizations, helpful information on sexual health throughout different phases of life, podcasts, a webinar, and more! Help us spread the word by sharing the content and adding your own using #SRHWeek.
