How Natsal has made a difference
The results from Natsal are used by doctors, policy makers and scientists. The first Natsal survey, in 1990, helped us to understand the spread of HIV in Britain and how best to stop it spreading further. More recently, the findings have helped plan health services like the National Chlamydia Screening programme and the HPV vaccination programme. The results are also used in health education programmes such as through teaching sex and relationship education in schools.
