Sexual health promotion and comprehensive sexuality education

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) sees sexual health promotion as part of broader support for general health and public health. This support extends to comprehensive sexuality education. Human sexuality is lifelong and consists of more than just the absence of disease and unintended pregnancy. This lifelong process is a normal part of biological, social, mental, and emotional development.
