SIECCAN developed a number of important resources for sexual health educators, policy makers, and other public health professionals via project funding through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s HIV and Hepatitis C Community Action Fund. Previously, this included the Canadian Guidelines for Sexual Health Education and Questions and Answers: Sexual Health Education in Schools and Other Settings, as well as other sexual health education resources on COVID-19.
Currently, SIECCAN is develping benchmarks for comprehensive sexual health education for youth. The Benchmarks will provide policy and program decision-makers and educators with a consistent, evidenced-based tool to develop, implement, and evaluate sexual health education programs/curricula that address the age/grade-specific sexual health education needs of the diverse youth population in Canada.
