The Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) is a cross-national research study conducted in collaboration with the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Every four years HBSC collects data on 11, 13 and15
year old’s health and wellbeing, including sexual health (SH). In 2006, twenty–nine countries surveyed students about their SH. The findings below are based on
data collected from 47 515 15-year-olds and are adapted from the previously
published study “How well protected are sexually active 15 year olds across Europe
and Canada? Data from the 2006 WHOHBSC study”
