Sexual Health in Redbridge
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among young people are rising. As a result, we want to understand a bit more about what our young people (ages 15 to 24) know about sexual health, and what they need. We can only do this by making YOU a part of the process. If you are aged 15 to 24, please help us by spending a couple of minutes answering these questions.
Here are some local facts on STIs:
- Chlamydia remains the most common STI in Redbridge
- In 2016, 3 in 5 new chlamydia diagnoses were made among 15-24 year olds
- Chlamydia can usually be easily treated with antibiotics
- Young people are also more likely to become reinfected with STIs
- Young people may be at risk of reinfection because they lack the skills and confidence to negotiate safer sex.
The closing date for this survey is the 6th August 2017.
