Region of Waterloo Public Health has been providing sexual health services in Waterloo Region District School Board secondary schools for over 25 years. In response to data and research findings related to the sexual health of youth in Waterloo Region, one component of the service provided to students in 14 Waterloo District School Board secondary schools is being enhanced. Students who visit a Public Health Nurse to seek contraception will be able to access it through the Public Health Nurse at their school instead of having to travel to a Region of Waterloo Public Health clinic to pick it up. All other aspects of the sexual health services provided by Public Health Nurses at Waterloo Region District School Board secondary schools remain unchanged.
