Safer Sex training resource

Flash Cards are one of the most effective and easy to use training tools. With one side bearing the subject introduction and the other the detailed subject information, they are ideal for classroom or lecture situations. You can create your own training games, e.g. pass the cards around or place them face down so only the name and picture appear. Ideal for testing the subject’s knowledge against the information on the rear of the card: there are no limits to your imagination on how to mix the Flash Cards into your training session
Set 1- Comprising of 16 cards which show pictures of contraceptives on one side and detailed information about them on the reverse.  Set 2 -Comprising a set of ten laminated cards covering sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The cards show a graphic image of the STI, and its common name.   On the reverse of each card is information on how it is transmitted, the symptoms, how it is diagnosed, how it is treated and the risks if it is left untreated.  A duplicate set of S.T.I. flash cards is included with the explicit images omitted for use with young people or the very squeamish!   Good trigger for discussion with young people around sexual health.
