This is the JSNA chapter on sexual health. Theme chapters summarises implications for commissioning, who is at risk and why, the level of need in the population, service provision and use, unmet needs, what works in terms of evidence, community views and priorities, any related equality impact assessments, unmet service needs/gaps and recommendations for further needs assessment work. 

The aim of this Sexual Health Needs Assessment is to gain an understanding of the current services, local needs and identify gaps in services in order to inform our approach to improving the sexual health of the local population. The findings will be used for planning and monitoring, and will also inform commissioning and service design. It will provide a framework to reduce sexual health inequalities across the general population including vulnerable groups.

The advice provided can be adapted to suit local circumstances and provides suggested sections that commissioners may wish to include in their contracts with providers of internet based chlamydia screening.

The considerations for commissioning in this guidance are applicable regardless of who the commissioner of the internet based service is and the local commissioning model chosen.

The Sexual and Reproductive Health Profiles have been developed by Public Health England (PHE) to support local authorities, public health leads and other interested parties to monitor the sexual and reproductive health of their population and the performance of local public health related systems.

The profiles are presented as interactive maps, charts and tables that provide a snapshot of sexual and reproductive health across a range of topics including teenage pregnancy, abortions, contraception, HIV, sexually transmitted infections and sexual offences. Wider influences on sexual health such as alcohol use, and other topics particularly relating to teenage conceptions such as education and deprivation level, are also included.
