Who we are –
Saskatoon Sexual Health (SSH) vision is a society where sexual and reproductive health and rights are celebrated and accessible to all. We provide sexual and reproductive health services in Saskatoon and area with an emphasis on safe, inclusive, empowering clinical care and education. We work with diverse communities to promote healthy and informed sexualities. SSH was formerly known as Planned Parenthood Saskatoon and has been providing services and support in Saskatoon and area since the 1970s. SSH is a non-profit, charitable organization that primarily promotes services to youth and young adults.
What we do -
SSH works to ensure that clients receive accurate and accessible information, resources, and support to promote healthy sexuality and sexual health. Clinical and educational services at SSH take a preventative, upstream approach striving to decrease rates of HIV, STIs, and unintended pregnancy in our community. In addition to our ongoing programs and services, SSH develops projects that create opportunities to meet the needs of diverse populations. In the last year, we developed a young men’s sexual health group and are in the process of developing programming for people with intellectual disabilities.
