Improving the sexual health of people in Wales

One of the key actions of the Sexual Health and Wellbeing Action Plan for Wales, 2010-2015, is to reduce the rates of teenage conceptions. We will work in partnership with Local Health Boards, Public Health Wales and Children and Young People.
The empower to choose project
This commenced on 2nd April 2012 consisting of two elements. The first is awareness raising and education of Long Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC). The second involves auditing the contraceptive advice given to pregnant teenagers.
Young women who conceive as teenagers are at greatly elevated risk of further repeat teenage conceptions. By encouraging the uptake of LARC has the potential to reduce conception rates. For more information on the empower to choose project go to the website (external link)
