Launch of Ireland’s first university programme on sexuality and sexual health education

The year-long programme is in response to the HSE’s National Sexual Health Strategy 2015-2020, which recommends the development and provision of sexual health training to education and healthcare professionals.

IFPA Training and Development Manager, Ms Anita Ghafoor-Butt, said: “This programme is the first of its kind in Ireland and provides an integrated and best practice approach to sexual health within a quality-assured framework at a third-level institution… The IFPA will also facilitate delivery programme modules, in partnership with DCU, and will provide practical and evidence-based learning on sexual health and wellbeing.”

The programme content will focus on developing knowledge regarding the diversity of sexualities and culture, sexual health education and sexual health promotion, in addition to teaching and learning about sexual health.
