SRH Week 2019 is Around the Corner!

Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week (SRH Week) 2019 is just around the corner! This year, it will take place from February 11-15 with the theme: Sexual health at all ages.

Sexuality and sexual health are integral to wellbeing throughout our lives. Everyone, no matter the age, is entitled to affirming health care, and that includes sexual health.

This year’s campaign will address sexual health at different stages of life, from children and sex-positive parenting all the way to aging and sexuality.

We deserve to be treated as the complex individuals that we are. This means recognizing that from beginning to end, we are sexual beings in need of accurate information about our sexual health.

In addition to the posters designed by Le Burrow, SRH Week 2019 will feature a series of blogposts written by community-based organizations, helpful information on sexual health throughout different phases of life, podcasts, a webinar, and more! We’ll be on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter too! Find us @actioncanadashr or download our social media kit at www.srhweek.ca (available early 2019).

The new campaign and material will be available on www.srhweek.ca as of February 11.

Can’t wait until then? The site and all our exciting tools from past campaigns are available year-round with reliable, easy to access, up-to-date and comprehensive bilingual information on sexual and reproductive health. Visit www.srhweek.ca to see for yourself!

Of course, any campaign needs strong voices to really make a difference. Help promote sexual and reproductive health this SRH Week by displaying the posters, following @actioncanadaSHR on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, visiting www.srhweek.ca and helping to spread the word!

Want more posters? No problem! If you would like to order more copies of the poster, visit www.srhweek.ca and fill out the poster order form. We’ll be happy to send you more at no charge.

Thanks for your support in recognizing the importance of sexual health at all ages!

Big or small, old or new, your sexual health matters!

SRH Week 2018 is just around the corner!

This year,  Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week (SRH Week)  will take place from February 12-16 with the theme: Mind Your “Business”

We want to spark conversations that help make the connection between sexual health and mental health clear and have been consulting with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to prepare for SRH Week 2018.

In addition to posters designed by Montreal artist Edith Boucher, SRH Week 2018 will feature a series of blogposts written by community-based organizations, a resource for health care providers on non-stigmatizing comprehensive care that addresses the many connections between mental and sexual/reproductive health, podcasts, a webinar, and more!

We’ll be on Facebook and Twitter too! Find us @srhweek or download our social media kit at www.srhweek.ca (available soon!).

It’s finally here: SRH Week 2015!

2014 was a milestone year for sexual health and rights in Canada. The Canadian Federation for Sexual Health (formerly Planned Parenthood Canada), Action Canada for Population and Development (ACPD) and Canadians for Choice joined to become one strong unified voice for sexual and reproductive health. The new organization, Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights is a progressive, pro-choice charity that is up and running and ready to speak up for sexual and reproductive health and rights in Canada and globally.

And speak up we will! As Action Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Public Health Association, we are excited to take on Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week, the campaign formerly hosted by the Canadian Federation for Sexual Health that takes place every year from February 9th to the 13th.

We are thrilled to re-introduce the Heart Your Parts theme with a refreshed look and campaign website. The site will be available year-round with reliable, easy to access, up to date and comprehensive information on sexual and reproductive health.

As part of the campaign, we want to hear from you with lively discussions on how together, as a local, national and global community, we can better promote and support sexual and reproductive health.

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter using #HeartYourParts or send us your blog ideas.

Caring for our whole selves is an important and empowering part of positive relationships and good sexual health. And having access to accurate information is key to knowing how to care for our bodies. Browsing the Heart Your Parts campaign page, you’ll find a range of content: from simple health tips, to facts on issues like pregnancy and sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and discussions on consent and problem solving.

You’ll find a social media kit on the website too, to help you spread the word about sexual and reproductive health. Scan our Heart Your Parts avatars for a display picture or create your own! We also have youth friendly, inclusive, and sex-positive sample Tweets and Facebook posts for you to share with your networks. Have something else to say? We’d love to hear it! Tweet us at @SRHweek or use #HeartYourParts and let us know how you promote healthy sexualities.
