The HSE Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme launched their new website towards the end of 2018. It has been developed to become a wonderful source of information and practice resources, which are of huge benefit to both the public and healthcare professionals alike. Thanks to Caroline Hurley, Project Manager for the Sexual Health & Crisis Pregnancy Programme, we have an excellent summary below of the resources and variety links contained on the website.

The website homepage is https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/

The page on https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/sexual-health/sexually-transmitted-infections/ includes information for the public about what to do if you have an STI and how to prevent them.

There is a page on https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/sexual-health/sexually-transmitted-infections/types-of-stis/ and

https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/sexual-health/sexually-transmitted-infections/genital-conditions/ which provides patient information and the leaflets to download.

 

https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/sexual-health/sexually-transmitted-infections/information-on-hiv/ provides patient info (and leaflets) on HIV testing, HIV treatment, guidance and leaflets on PrEP, PEP, etc.

 

https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/sexual-health/vaccinations/ for info on HPV, HAV and HBV vaccine.

 

https://www.sexualwellbeing.ie/sexual-health/contraception/ for information on contraception

 

All the patient information leaflets can be downloaded or ordered for free through https://www.healthpromotion.ie

- When you are registered as a professional, you can order greater quantities.

These include:
