David Swann released the following statement to mark Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Day:
“Our sexual health is something that we don’t like to discuss, yet is an important part of our overall well-being. Healthy sexual attitudes through open discussion and greater understanding of sexual consent at earlier ages are critically needed.
Safe sex practices are very much needed to prevent unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections and there is no shame in seeking out medical treatment.
“We need more open attitudes to healthy sexuality in our province, but the first step comes from reducing the stigma.”
