To provide safe and accessible sexual health services delivered with and for the people of Fife
To support everyone in Fife achieving good sexual health
Different approaches are needed to support everyone to have good sexual health. Women living with disadvantages (substance dependency, offending behaviour and/or homelessness) have the greatest risk of sexual ill health (unplanned pregnancy, abortion, high perinatal & maternal morbidity, low uptake of cervical screening & low contraceptive use). We noticed that few women with these disadvantages attend mainstream sexual health services in Fife. Women have shared with us some of the reasons why this can be difficult & helped us develop the ACoRN Fast Pass (Access Care Respond to Needs).
We hope this will support more women living with disadvantage to attend Sexual Health Fife to access testing, treatment & prevention and not just when things go wrong. We will provide contraception, testing for sexually transmitted infections including HIV & Hepatitis, cervical screening, Hep B vaccination as well as free condoms & sanitary protection.
We will continue to involve women to ensure high satisfaction with ACoRN.
Work is ongoing with other people in Fife who are at high risk of sexual ill health and we may expand ACoRN to other groups.
