The target audience for this handbook includes public health programme managers working on and with STI/HIV prevention programmes for young people 15 - 24 years old in EU/EEA countries. As some readers will already be well - versed in social media before reading this handbook, this section has been written to be “optional,” however it may be valuable for readers who are already familiar
with social media but have not explored sexual health content posted on social media in their specific context.
