England Health Summer 2020


Sexual Health in the United Kingdom


The United States (US) has long had some of the highest rates of teen pregnancy, birth, and sexual risk-taking among youth in the developed world. In contrast, the United Kingdom (UK) has much lower rates than the US. The primary purpose of this study abroad class is to explore the sexual health culture, policies, and practices in the UK and how they differ from those in the US.
During a three-week stay in London, students will experience sexual health programs, policies, and services from a “sex positive” perspective by visiting a variety of agencies and organizations targeted with reproductive health for teens and young adults. Included in these class activities are lectures/presentations from leading UK sexual health experts and site visits to specific agencies/organizations.
