FPA urges next government to invest in high quality relationships and sex education
Sexual health charity FPA is calling on the next government to commit to investing in high quality sex and relationships education to reduce the UK’s teenage pregnancy rate. Recently published statistics show that the UK’s teenage birth rate is one of the highest in Western Europe.

Natika H Halil, Chief Executive of FPA, commented:"Whichever party forms the next government must invest in both public health services and high quality relationships and sex education – anything else is a false economy.”
