Friday 4th September 2015 marks World Sexual Health Day.
This year's focus is on how promotion of Sexual Health and Sexual Rights contribute to a fairer society for all persons, specifically justice related to sexual health and human rights.
Under the theme "Sexual Health for a Fairer Society", the World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) has updated and published a Sexual Rights Declaration. Read the Declaration.
The Day has a Facebook page where you can see activities around the world.
This is the sixth year of World Sexual Health Day.
WAS/World Health Organisation working definition of sexual health (2002) is: "Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled."
