The World Health Organisation
(WHO) defines sexual health as:
“A state of physical, emotional, mental
and social wellbeing related to
sexuality; it is not merely the absence
of disease, dysfunction or infirmity.
Sexual health requires a positive and
respectful approach to sexuality and
sexual relationships, as well as the
possibility of having pleasurable and
safe sex experiences, free of coercion,
discrimination and violence. For sexual
health to be attained and maintained,
the sexual rights of all persons is
respected, protected and fulfilled.”
(WHO, 2002)
