The National Sexual Health Policy for the Maltese Island

This policy response is the country’s first sexual health strategy. The policy seeks to promote sexual health as an essential and integral element of the holistic notion of human well being. Categorically it is not exclusively about contraception, or disease prevention, but about the enhancement of an important dimension of human health – sexual health.

The services of assistance, education and prevention will also have to take into account the socio-economic inequalities that can affect sexual health. The services have to be all-inclusive (non discriminatory) of all sections of society.
