Dr Annette Cerulli-Harms spoke at the Public Policy Exchange conference on Student Sexual Health and Well Being on March 8th 2018 about how behavioural economics can be used to change the way we speak about sexual health. Annette explained the relevance of behavioural economics and cognitive biases in the area of public health including sexual health. Some common biases, like the hot-cold empathy gap, raise questions around why current awareness and education campaigns might have limited effectiveness and that their might be scope for re-thinking the way we speak and communicate around sexual health.
Annette took furthermore part in a wider panel discussion on ‘Improving Student Sexual Health and Well Being: Raising Awareness, Strengthening Outreach’.
