"This training was fantastic. It has really equipped me with the knowledge on sexual health and contraception in order to help the people I work with."

"I found the training really comprehensive and informative within a relaxed setting. This allowed us to be able to engage effectively and obtain as much information as possible which will be extremely valuable for a long time to come. I can’t wait to put into practice what I learned."
