HIV/STD Prevention, Teen Pregnancy Prevention & Sexual Health Education

Our aim is to reduce instances of HIV/STD and pregnancy among our youth by providing the following:

  • Technical assistance to districts regarding the provision of exemplary sexual health education in Florida schools and effective policies related to sexual health education and HIV/STD prevention.
  • Development and promotion of partnerships between state and local departments of health, school districts, and community-based organizations.
  • Florida's Sexual Health Education Community Outreach Tool Kit provides information, ideas, and strategies that will assist school district staff and community members with reducing the number of teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among youth and improve the health and academic success of students.
