National Coalition for Sexual Health

The National Coalition for Sexual Health (NCSH), managed by Partnership for Prevention, aims to improve sexual health and well-being by encouraging productive and sustained conversations about sexual health and promoting high-quality sexual health information and health services. The coalition currently consists of over 40 organizations and individuals who share a commitment to advancing sexual health and the overall health of our nation. The NCSH embraces a positive, health promotion approach across the lifespan. The coalition believes that being sexually healthy means being able to enjoy a healthy body, a satisfying sexual life, positive relationships, and peace of mind.

The two primary action groups of the NCSH are the Communications Action Group and the Health Care Action Group. Both groups create a variety of products for healthcare providers and the public to start conversations about sexual health and prompt action to improve sexual health and well-being. They also develop tools that healthcare providers can use to improve the delivery of high-quality sexual health information and services in clinical practice.

These two action groups have unveiled a variety of products, including: a public-friendly definition of sexual health; key action steps to achieving good sexual health and the related benefits; a media-centric message framework to encourage media coverage of sexual health; a comprehensive audience profile on the sexual health of youth in the United States; and a patient guide on recommended preventive sexual healthcare services.

To learn more about the coalition, check out the NCSH Web site where you can find their mission, values, and goals; information about coalition members; products and tools; and a library of customizable public awareness materials (the Sexual Health Resource Exchange).
