S.H.A.G Week is running from January 14th to January 21st to remove the taboos around sex, sexual health, sexuality and everything that comes with it.
Content warning: sex, gender, sexuality. If at any point you need to quickly leave this page, you can hit escape to return to homepage.
S.H.A.G week is a dedicated week of campaigning to highlight resources and support available for students’ sexual health.
Sexual Health is a key campaign for us during the 22/23 academic year and we've launched this week, running from National STI Awareness Day, to promote conversations around safer sex practices, and encourage students to get tested."

Hello, and welcome to Strath Union’s S.H.A.G. Week!
As part of S.H.A.G Week 2023, we were hoping to provide STI Testing on campus. We couldn't make that happen because sexual health services in Glasgow are under-supported and underfunded, and it's us students that are some of the most left at risk. If you think that this needs to change, get involved by signing our petition.
Prior to this campaign, the Sexual Health Working Group was created to implement and explore recommendations from the Strath Union Student Sexual Health Survey in 2020.
