Public Health England's Sexual Health Balanced Scorecard (currently unavailable) provides a snapshot of sexual health at a 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 particular tool allows users to view and compare key and supporting indicators to provide a wider view of sexual health at a Local Authority level.
