About Reproductive and Sexual Health

Promoting reproductive and sexual health requires attention to the physical, mental, and emotional needs of adults everywhere. A major goal of sexual health researchers is to prevent, diagnose, and treat sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as HIV/AIDS or human papillomavirus (HPV). Sexual health research involves more than just the prevention of diseases though; methods to improve fertility and strategies to reduce unplanned pregnancies also fit into this field.  Reproductive health, another major facet of sexual health, covers women in every stage of their reproductive journey, from conception to delivery. Women often face unique health risks and conditions during pregnancy, and catching these conditions early can be the best line of defense for women and their fetuses. Researchers hope that their work can help individuals and families be happy and healthy throughout all stages of life and sexuality.
