Center of Excellence for Sexual Health

In spite of the numerous sexual health disparities that exist throughout the world, discussion of sexual health still remains taboo. Health professionals are in prime positions to help address sexual health disparities by comfortably and competently addressing sexual health with patients across the lifespan, yet they rarely receive adequate training.

The Center of Excellence for Sexual Health (CESH) is a leader in training health professionals to address the intersecting layers of patients’ & communities’ identities, lived experiences, and sexual health. CESH also leads in the development of educational tools and systematic infrastructure for incorporating sexual health content in training programs.

As a result of our training, more community leaders, health policy leaders, and health professionals, especially physicians, are incorporating sexual health content in their practice. As a result of our collaborative work developing competencies for sexual health as well as LGBTQ+ health, more schools are including content in their curricula. As a result of our work in religion and sexual health, more communities are discussing the intersections of faith, race, culture, and sexual health.

CESH works collaboratively with numerous organizations and individuals to help shape the state of sexual health around the world today. Examples of partner organizations include: Association of American Medical Colleges; National Coalition for Sexual Health; Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality; American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists; Summits on Medical Education and Sexual Health; Atlanta Coalition for LGBTQ+ Youth; Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential; The Health Initiative; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
