IHP consists of a range of health promotion activities to be delivered in three geographic locations (based on areas of sexual and reproductive health disadvantage), and a number of activities that responded to the needs of individuals from disadvantaged or marginalised groups (with a particular focus on young people). IHP goals are:

  • to improve the sexual and reproductive health literacy of young people
  • to provide expert advice, consultancy services and support, on young people’s sexual and reproductive health, to primary care providers.
