Sexual Health Motion 2017, TSR Liberal Party
This house believes all areas regarding the health of our citizens- whether it be mental health, physical health, or indeed sexual health, are of critical importance. While this house notes there have been improvements in sexual health, more must be done, with the number of diagnoses of syphilis and gonorrhea rising year by year. We believe that as a less noticeable and traditionally taboo aspect of health, more must be done to promote it, with our younger population particularly at risk.

Therefore, this House calls on the government to increase funding in Sexual Health services, in order to open more clinics and to increase sexual education in our schools in order to ensure the health of both our younger and older population.



Notes
This motion would help to better sexual health in the UK, while also fulfilling our manifesto commitment to increase funding in sexual health clinics.
Evidence here for syphilis and gonorrhea rate rises, as well as young people being at risk, a report from public health England.

Between 2014-15 there was a

4% decrease in total Chlamydia cases in England
0% change in Herpes
10% decrease in 'non specific genital infection',
4% decrease in Pelvic inflammatory disease & epididymitis
1% decrease in Chlamydial PID & epididymitis
6% decrease in Gonococcal PID & epididymitis
7% decrease in Anogential warts
4% decrease in 'Other new STI diagnoses'

With the only increases being 20% in Syphilis and 11% in Gonorrhoea. 2 increases out of 10 categories. There was an overall 3% decrease in STI diagnoses between 2014-15.

Nice attempt at trying to manipulate data to make a point.

We do not believe a 3% decrease is good enough. We want an increase (doesn't have to be hugely sizeable) to help fix an issue quicker. It's also why we're not suggesting new ideas but pushing for more funding in things that are working

What do you want, 50% per year? And what actually are the incidence rates? It's all well and good throwing a load of money at a problem, which the whole house seems to like to do, but if the effect is near zero it's creating a problem to throw money at, something out the whole house seems to like.

Anyone should just watch this if they don't know about sex:

10-15% decrease rates would be a good start. We should put in a small increase, monitor results over two years or so and then see if that increase had a large enough effect to warrant more funding afterwards

Nay.
My understanding is that it has not got out of control, and current levels of spending are entirely adequate.

In fact if NHS spending has been reduced by several hundred million £££s the laws few years and there is still a decrease in STI cases then it's not a pressing issue which needs money urgently thrown at it.

What about inceasing sex ed class? There's not enough sex ed class in schools educating young people about safe sex. If they were better informed pregnancy and std rates will go down.

It's cos all the British girls / chavs are skets and can't close their legs. But then the schools refuse to teach abstinence, and they're certainly not going to get any moral guidance from their parents.
