National Coalition for Sexual Health
The National Coalition for Sexual Health (NCSH) aims to improve sexual health and well-being by encouraging productive and sustained conversations about sexual health and promoting high quality sexual health information and health services. Established in 2012, the Coalition is managed by Partnership for Prevention in cooperation with the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, Center of Excellence for Sexual Health at Morehouse School of Medicine, The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, National Viral Hepatitis Roundtable, and Project Inform.

The Coalition aims to make sexual health a common part of our national discourse and promote high quality sexual health care services.  The Coalition will bring together organizations and individuals who have a stake in not just advancing sexual health, but in advancing the overall health of our nation. Health care providers, consumer and advocacy groups, health organizations, businesses, media, faith-based organizations, educators, and the public health community will be invited to participate and to engage in joint action.
