Pediatrician's Role

Pediatricians and other primary health care providers are an important source of health care information for adolescents and young adults and play a significant role in addressing their reproductive and sexual health care needs. Annual clinical preventive service visits provide an opportunity for comprehensive education and delivery of health care services to help promote and optimize health sexual and reproductive development. It also provides an opportunity to discuss decision-making around healthy relationships, healthy sexual behavior, and prevention of STIs, pregnancy, HIV, and HPV.
