Sexual and reproductive health — what you should know


reproductive health


The biological traits that distinguish humans as female or male are referred to as sex. While these biological qualities are not mutually exclusive, as some people have both, they do tend to distinguish humans as males and females. The term sex is commonly used to denote “sexual activity” in various languages, although the preceding definition is favored for technical purposes in the context of sexuality and sexual health discourse.

Without a thorough consideration of sexuality, which underpins essential behaviors and outcomes connected to sexual health, sexual health cannot be defined, understood, or implemented. The following is a working definition of sexuality:

“…sex, gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure, intimacy, and reproduction are all important aspects of being human throughout life.” Thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviors, practices, roles, and relationships are all ways in which sexuality is experienced and expressed. While all of these qualities can be found in sexuality, not all of them are always experienced or expressed. “Biological, psychological, social, economic, political, cultural, legal, historical, religious, and spiritual elements all interact to determine sexuality.” (World Health Organization, 2006a)
