Tuesday, October 28, 2008: 4:30 PM
In addressing the theme of the APHA Annual Meeting, this session highlights sexual health education programs targeting populations beyond traditional borders. Examples include contraceptive use and health literacy among women with abnormal paps, reproductive health needs of people living with HIV/AIDS in India, and understanding reproductive health issues among Latinas. In addition, traditional borders for implementing such programs are also expanded to include parents and families as targets for educational strategies.
Session Objectives: To recognize the importance of addressing issues such as health literacy in sexual health education. To better understand reproductive health needs and practices among vulnerable populations.
