Introduction

The Sexual and Reproductive Health Profiles have been developed by Public Health England (PHE) to support local authorities, public health leads and other interested parties monitor the sexual and reproductive health of their population and the contribution of local public health related systems.

Interactive maps, charts and tables provide a snapshot and trends across a range of topics including teenage pregnancy, abortions, contraception, HIV, sexually transmitted infections and sexual offences. Wider influences on sexual health such as alcohol use, and other topics particularly relating to teenage conceptions such as education and deprivation level, are also included. 

To accompany this tool, advice and further data can be found in:

Developments and contact details

The range of indicators and their presentation will be extended and refined as further data sources and software functionality become available. We also make ongoing improvements to the tool, including the accompanying indicator definitions and supporting information, following user feedback and reviews.

Feedback is welcomed - please email us at profilefeedback@phe.gov.uk. Alternatively, you may wish to discuss issues raised with local or regional PHE contacts, including PHE Sexual Health Facilitators who are attached to each PHE Centre.
