Two Should Know
The overarching goal of the initiative is to effect long‐term improvements in sexual health across the life-span and reduce negative health outcomes in the Paso del Norte region. The Foundation uses a sex positive approach which promotes a society where every touch is a wanted touch and sexual health across the life-span is recognized as an integral human need for healthy development and nurturing. Research has shown that sexually healthy persons - persons who are sexually literate, comfortable and competent - are more likely to make sexually healthy choices, including decisions concerning sexually risky behaviors. Exploring, celebrating and communicating about sexuality from a positive position that is self-affirming, age appropriate, aligned with ethical, spiritual and moral beliefs, values and healthy behaviors is essential to achieve long term sexual health and reduced negative health outcomes. Program partners are working throughout the region and policy efforts for sexual health education are in development.
