Natasha interviews Dr. Doug Braun-Harvey for part two in a 6-part series to discuss the principles of Sexual Health, developed by the World Health Organization.
The third principle of avoiding unwanted pregnancy and STIs is discussed in length and detail. In fact, this part 1 only goes into reproductive decision making. You would think the conversation would be as simple as “use birth control and condoms.” Not so. Doug has an uncanny way of furthering the conversation in such important ways that have implications for those in committed relationships, casual relationships, teens, adults and parents.
