Each year a new generation in a changing society

What has become obvious, and should always be remembered in sexual healthcare is the way new generations of young people again and again need education and provisions. Moreover, lifestyles, attitudes and needs of new generations change, making constant adaptations and updates of materials and provisions necessary.

Healthcare and illness prevention

The same is true in a changing societal context. For sexual healthcare to adequately target young people’s needs, societal developments such as increasing access to new media, and availability of sexually-explicit materials in an increasingly sexualised (youth) culture, should be adequately studied and reckoned with in healthcare responses. Healthcare and illness prevention unavoidably need to develop permanently.
