An exploratory study to test STASH, a peer-led intervention to prevent and reduce STI transmission and improve sexual health in secondary schools   (2016-2019)    

Traditional school sexual health interventions have mixed effects on the sexual health of young people.  We think these may be improved by using a peer lead digital interactive platform.  Our feasibility study and pilot trial aims to assess the barriers and facilitators of implementing the new intervention in secondary schools and determining the parameters for a full randomised control trial.
