Government of New Brunswick

There are many and various stakeholders involved in sexual health programming in New Brunswick. These include Public Health, community physicians, nurse practitioners, community organizations and youth services providers. Within Public Health, various programs are involved in the control of STBBIs. Public Health roles are best described as follows:

Public Health nurses in all Public Health programs work in collaboration with other government sectors, voluntary organizations, youth service providers and parents to build healthy public policy, create supportive environments, strengthen community actions, develop personal skills and adapt public health sexual health programs and services to local needs.

Public Health nurses in the Communicable Disease program work with clinicians and affected individuals to help control the spread of STBBIs by providing education and counselling to those affected by STBBI and to their sexual and drug use partners.
