Sexual & Reproductive Health Awareness Week

The Canadian Federation for Sexual Health challenges you to Heart Your Parts !

Heart Your Parts is about recognizing the importance of your sexual health as part of your overall well being, and working together to build a stronger culture of healthier and happier sex positive individuals engaging in healthy sexual behaviours.

By affirming and pursuing your right to sexual and reproductive health, and encouraging others to do so, you can help create the foundation for a culture where everyone’s rights to good health are acknowledged and celebrated. We all express our sexuality in different ways, but all informed and consensual forms of sexual expression are worth celebrating.

When we talk openly about sexual health, we help create a culture where our diverse sexual and reproductive health rights and needs are respected in a safe and sex positive way.

Educating yourself about protection, getting tested, knowing your risks, and learning how to communicate with partners and your health care provider , helps create the healthy consent-based culture that you, your parts, and your community deserve. Don’t wait, it’s time to Heart Your Parts
