Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week
February 12th – 18th is Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week. The SOGC encourages members and colleagues to join our partners at Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights in promoting sexual and reproductive health in Canada.
As part of SRH Week, Action Canada has developed a handbook for health care providers working with clients from diverse communities. This book provides tips and strategies for building healthy relationships with your patients and clients. Having the right language, skills, and tools to create an affirming and inclusive environment can help ensure that all patients feel safe accessing the services they need.
We encourage you to be a part of the solution. Set aside some time this week to learn how to best provide care to diverse ethnic, cultural and religious groups, Indigenous communities, the LGBTQ community, sex workers, people with disabilities, youth, and more.
