HIV Scotland ask young people about their experience of RSHP lessons

Friday 1st December 2017

We have now launched the next stage of our research into young people’s experience of Relationship, Sexual Health and Parenthood (RSHP) lessons and their knowledge and understanding of HIV. The Scottish Government has stated that access to sexual health education is a key mechanism to ensure that young people have the information and skills to make health choices regarding their sexual health. Our latest Education report published in September found that young people across Scotland do not have consistent access to information about HIV and RSHP lessons do not have parity with other areas of the curriculum. We are now asking young people aged 12-25 to share their experience of RSHP lessons with us and to tell us about their HIV knowledge.

Our survey has been shared with schools and on our social media but we now need your help to share it widely online and with your networks. The survey is anonymous and open to young people aged 12-25 in Scotland. You can find the survey here.

We will be publishing the next stage of our education work in March 2018.
