The Portsmouth Sexual Health Needs Assessment (SHNA) needs robust local data to help shape it going forward, which will be used alongside qualitative research previously undertaken in Portsmouth.

To date there is a wealth of national data available regarding sexual health and the accessing of services including numerous studies relating to specific subsections of the population, particularly those who face disproportionate risk. Locally, qualitative research has been undertaken with professionals to help inform a Portsmouth SHNA, however there was a need for more local data to inform the SHNA.

Public consultation will provide a better understanding of those who may not be known to sexual health services or be represented in the available data. A public consultation will also help to provide a local picture of the current knowledge, needs, and opportunities for residents and offers the opportunity to drill down into subsets of the local population to inform decision making at a targeted level.
