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


Resources: World AIDS Day Observance and the Importance of Prevention Education (PDF)

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.
  • Training and professional development opportunities for district and school administrators, educators, school nurses, psychologists, and social workers, offered through online trainings, regional trainings, and training tracks at the Healthy Schools Summer Academy.
  • 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.
