New Brunswick (NB) youth have a high frequency of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancy. As well, children and youth under 18 account for 66% of all victims of sexual violations reported to police in NB. To inform the development and/or adaption of sexual health education resources for parents, stepparents and guardians in the province, the team helped Public Health conduct a survey on current knowledge, resources used, and needs in educating their children.
