On behalf of the Planning Committee and Supporting National Partners, we are happy to announce that registration is now open for the 2017 National Sexual Health Conference. The biennial conference has seen sustained growth since its inception in 2013 drawing individuals engaged in activities across the spectrum of sexual health. By coming together utilizing a sexual health framework, we hope we can achieve synergies that will enhance the work in our own specific disciplines. Doing so will help promote many areas of care and education and will improve services for diverse populations.

The conference goals are to:

1) Increase knowledge, communication and respectful attitudes regarding sexual health;
2) Increase use of high quality evidenced-based educational, clinical and other preventive services that improve sexual health;
3) Increase capacity for healthy, responsible, respectful, pleasurable sexual behaviors and relationships;
4) Decrease adverse health outcomes including HIV/AIDS, STIs, viral hepatitis, unintended pregnancies and sexual violence; and
5) Decrease stigma and increase health equity.

"Sexual health is more than freedom from sexual disease or disorders ... Sexual health is non-exploitive and respectful of self and others ... Sexual health is dependent upon an individual's well-being and sense of self-esteem. Sexual health requires trust, honesty, and communication." — Eli Coleman, PhD
