Key to Compliance: Reproductive and Sexual Health Policies & Practices for STRTPs

This reproductive and sexual health policy and practice guide is intended to assist Short-Term Residential Therapeutic Programs (STRTPs) with upholding the reproductive and sexual health rights of youth in care, while maintaining their safety and well-being. The guide contains policy and practice recommendations across five focus areas to improve an organization’s capacity to comply with legal requirements set forth in the California Foster Youth Sexual Health Education Act (Senate Bill 89), Community Care Licensing Standards, and best practice regarding the reproductive and sexual health rights of foster youth.
