Description:
It is evident that there is scope to improve the knowledge and awareness of STI health issues anlong students in NUT Galway. This should not only be targeted at third level students however as risky sexual behaviour can often begin at a far earlier stage in an individual's life. Therefore policies on sexual health should begin at the first level of education and feed into a spiral-learning pattern that is built on at each further level of education empowering students to make informed decisions about their sexual health. Health promotion can play a vital role in transferring relevant STI information and modifying the behaviour of students to produce more healthy outcomes.
