SHIFT – Sexuel Hsanté jen le plus FouJy-fives est un projet qui vise à améliorer la santé sexuelle et le bien-être des personnes de plus de 45 ans.

Le KCHFT travaille avec des partenaires à travers l'Europe pour mettre en œuvre le programme, qui améliorera les services de santé sexuelle pour les plus de 45 ans en :

Accroître la sensibilisation et l'accès aux services de santé sexuelle

Augmenter les tests de dépistage du VIH et des infections sexuellement transmissibles

Améliorer la qualité de vie

Supporting professionals with training

In 2006, The World Health Organisation (WHO) defined sexual health as “a state of physical, emotional, mental and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality – it is not just the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity.”

SHIFT is led by the Health & Europe Centre and brings together partners with expertise in public health, sexual health, community health from the United Kingdom, The Netherlands and Belgium.

Our partnership will allow SHIFT to work with local populations in the 2Seas region, helping improve their sexual health and wellbeing, while working to develop research work that can be used elsewhere to help others.

From research through surveys and focus groups, SHIFT has identified four main topics that will be prioritised by the project:

Knowledge: How can SHIFT improve the limited knowledge around sexual health both in the general population aged 45 and over, and in health care professionals who have limited experience in this area?

Awareness: How can SHIFT improve how we share and communicate information around sexual health and wellbeing with people aged 45 and over?

Access: How can SHIFT improve access to information and services to support good sexual health and wellbeing for individuals?

Stigma: How can SHIFT help to reduce stigma around talking about sexual health and wellbeing, and increase the acceptance of sexual health being an important part of a person’s overall health and wellbeing?

SHIFT fait partie d'un projet de 4 millions d'euros du programme Interreg VA 2Seas qui impliquait des partenaires du Royaume-Uni, des Pays-Bas, de France et de Belgique et reçoit un financement du Fonds européen de développement régional.
