Young people are at particular risk of poor sexual health and relatively high rates of STIs. According to the European Centre for Disease Control (ECDC), chlamydia is the most frequently reported sexually transmitted infection in Europe, with 73% of the cases being found in young people.

Whilst much progress has been made in Europe – both to provide sexual education, and to reduce teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections, it can remain difficult for practitioners to interact with young people and adolescents in an effective manner.

At policy level, the World Health Organisation contributes enormously through its European Regional Strategy on Sexual and Reproductive Health aimed at reforming existing services at national level. The ECDC is also attempting to tackle sexual health problems by implementing surveillance systems such as the European Surveillance System (TESSy).

This timely international symposium provides an invaluable opportunity for participants to examine and discuss sexual health related challenges and assess the progress made so far in tackling sexual health issues related to young people.
