Targeted prevention service for sexual and reproductive health


Most adults are sexually active and good sexual health matters to individuals and communities. Sexual health needs vary according to factors such as age, gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity. However, there are certain core needs common to everyone, including:

  • high-quality information and education enabling people to make informed responsible decisions
  • access to high-quality services, treatment and interventions.

This specification outlines the aims of the targeted prevention, to promote positive sexual and reproductive health outcomes and prevent poor ones.

Local Authorities have a responsibility to provide comprehensive sexual health services. Devon and Torbay Local Authorities work together to provide a common, consistent and high-quality approach to all sexual and reproductive health services. Integrated clinical services are jointly contracted by Devon County Council and Torbay Council, delivered by Northern Devon Healthcare Trust and known as ‘Devon Sexual Health’. Both Councils also commission contraception and sexual health services from Primary Care.

The targeted prevention service aims to build on this approach across Devon and Torbay.
