In 2010 WHO convened an expert consultation on sexual health to make recommendations on strategic directions for RHR work in this area. One of the priorities recommended was the development of sexuality counselling guidelines for health care providers as a tool to be used to facilitate the integration of this counseling into health services, mainly by primary health care workers (physicians, nurses and others)and in sexual and reproductive health services.
