Should we change the focus of health promotion in sexual health clinics?


In a response to the recent article by Rudiger Pitroff and Elizabeth Goodburn on changing the focus of health promotion in sexual health clinics, Crouch and Fagan draw attention to the confusion among practitioners between brief interventions in clinics (health education) and the actual nature and scope of sexual health promotion. The response refocuses attention on the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion and on the social determinants of sexual health inequity as appropriate design drivers of a pilot initiative proposed by Pitroff and Goodburn to re-orient sexual health service provision around the real needs of its clients.
