The NHS has launched a Summer Health Advice Guide (S.H.A.G) to provide young people with access information about sexual health services available during the Summer break and leading  up to fresher’s weeks.

S.H.A.G is a digital advice guide targeted at under 25 year olds living in Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton. The S.H.A.G contains key information around:

  • Access to condoms
  • Access to EHC (Emergency Contraception)
  • Consent
  • What to do if they have any unprotected sex
  • How to avoid pregnancy
  • How to avoid STIs
  • Other FAQs

The guide has been designed and written based on feedback from young people themselves and is accessible online here:

We will be running a Facebook advert enabling us to target by age and location promoting the guide. We will also be posting daily content via our social media channels – our campaign hashtag is #hashshag
