Welcome to the Southern
California Sexual Health Collaborative

Our mission: Advance innovative practices in sexual health throughout Southern California.

Group Accomplishments

The Southern California Sexual Health Collaborative (SCSHC) initially developed around the goal of having a stronger cohesive voice around statewide activities that tend to be centered in the Bay Area and Sacramento.  Specifically, many in this group were interested in having stronger input into the Adolescent Sexual Health Work Group (ASHWG).  The SCSHC also formed to face unique challenges in Southern California, including large population size, incredible diversity, national border issues and the constant barrier of Southern California’s wide-spread geography.

The Southern California Sexual Health Collaborative is pleased to announce that the 7th annual Southern California Sexual Health Summit will take place in Los Angeles, on Thursday, February 11, 2016. This theme of next year’s Summit is: With Pleasure & Justice for All.
