Sexual-Health Education
The Avondale and North Avondale community believes this sexual health information is needed, appropriate and useful to all community members.

This information is available to  assist in a better understanding of the aspects of sexual health.

Why is it needed?
1) Ohio does not teach Health education in schools, while sexual misinformation and adult violence are readily available on TV, the Web, and in movies.
2) Young teens are becoming parents long before they are ready to parent.
3) STDs/Aids: The numbers are especially high in this community, in this county, and in the State of Ohio.

The articles provided here are directed at specific needs:
