Level of EvidenceN/A
The National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health affirms the right of all individuals to quality, evidence-based sexual and reproductive health (SRH) care that is non-judgmental, respectful, and culturally appropriate. SRH is an important component in individuals’ overall physical, emotional, and social well-being. SRH encompasses sexuality, sexual relationships, and all matters related to the function and processes of the reproductive system. The SRH of one individual often intertwines with that of another individual or individuals. Sexual and reproductive healthcare includes health promotion, disease prevention, and identification and treatment of disease. As such, SRH care addresses issues such as sexuality, reproductive life planning, fertility, contraception, preconception health, all pregnancy options, reproductive assistance options, sexually transmitted infections (STIs)/HIV infection, SRH-related vaccinations (e.g., HPV vaccination), sexual dysfunction, reproductive health-related illnesses such as breast and cervical cancers, and violence within relationships. NPWH asserts that women’s health nurse practitioners (WHNPs) have a uniquely strong educational foundation to provide SRH care for all individuals, inclusive of all gender identities and sexual orientations. The specific purpose of this position statement is to support the role of WHNPs in the provision of SRH care for males. Providing quality SRH care to males not only helps them preserve and promote their own health but also helps optimize SRH outcomes in females.
