Taking Routine Histories of Sexual Health: A System-Wide Approach for Health Centers

The National Association of Community Health Centers and the National LGBT Health Education Center

To support health centers as they endeavor to better integrate sexual health into patient-centered care, we collaborated with the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to create Taking Routine Histories of Sexual Health: A System-Wide Approach for Health Centers (Toolkit).

For patients and the health centers that serve them, sexual health care and prevention interventions mean routine screening of physical, behavioral, and social health factors and subsequent care management and coordination with public health through strong partnerships.  Skilled at patient engagement and proactive planned care, health centers can integrate a routine sexual health history as part of the overall health assessment, as well as routine screenings for HIV and hepatitis C based on the most current CDC recommendations.
