The Sexual Health Balanced Scorecard provides a snapshot of sexual health at local level. Interactive maps and charts enable comparisons to be made regionally and nationally across a range of indicators relating to teenage pregnancy, abortions, contraception, sexually transmitted infections and other relevant issues.
The aim is to provide a key source of sexual health information for public health, commissioning and performance management colleagues at a local, regional and national level.
This tool was originally devised to show data for each primary care trust in England. Given the current reorganisation, data is now being developed instead for each local authority. However, where this is not yet possible, data will continue to be updated by PCT.
The indicators have been categorised as either key or supporting. These will be updated anddeveloped further on an ongoing basis, drawing on data collection improvements and feedback received. Note that a few indicators are only displayed at Local Authority partner(s) level for some PCTs. The LA Data and PCT Data sections provide further details, and additional information resources can also be found there and via the Useful Links section.
