The World Association for Sexual Health (WAS) promotes sexual health through the world by developing and supporting sexology and sexual rights for all. Our membership represents more than one hundred organizations from the five continents and thousands of experienced and trainee sexologists from a variety of disciplines.

Sexual health is a central dimension of overall health and wellness and a fundamental area in people’s lives. The concept of sexual health is also closely associated with the idea of sexual rights. Everyone is entitled to have a satisfying sex life, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. The World Association of Sexual Health in its Sexual Rights Declaration(WAS, 2014) emphasizes the idea that sexual rights are essential to the full expression of sexual health and are based on universal human rights.
