Sexual health and sexually transmitted infections remain a significant public health problem in Europe, with untreated STIs potentially leading to serious short and long term consequences for individuals. The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDPC) are attempting to tackle sexual health problems by implementing behavioural surveillance systems at the national level in order to collect and analyse measureable data on different cases. ECDPC supports the development of a comprehensive framework for behavioural surveillance in EU/EFTA countries. Additionally, the World Health Organisation contributes enormously through its European regional strategy on sexual and reproductive health aimed at reforming existing services at national level.
This timely international symposium will provide a valuable insight into the latest behavioural surveillance methods used in Europe, raise awareness of sexual reproductive health related challenges and explore innovative solutions. Delegates from all sectors will have the opportunity to exchange ideas and share best practices in improving sexual health education and awareness for all young people in Europe.
