Sexual Health Clinics and Services

Sexual Health is defined as a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality. In partnership with people and communities, Ottawa Public Health works to ensure equitable access to contraception, sexual health and harm reduction services, information and resources.  

Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence.
