The Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) study is a cross-national research project which aims to increase the understanding of young peoples’ health, well-being and behaviours. The findings are used to inform and influence population health, health services and health education policy and practice at local, national and international levels, in addition to contributing to the academic literature. The inclusion of four sexual behaviour questions has been mandatory for 15 year old participants in HBSC since 2002. Due to practical, political and ethical reasons, these questions have only been included in Ireland since 2010.
