Share the love, not STIs: Why should we care?
- Rates of STIs (sexually transmitted infections) such as chlamydia, HIV and syphilis are on the rise in Victoria
- Almost 80 per cent of these infections are in young people, even higher for young people in the west
- Rates of condomless sex are higher in the west than in other parts of Victoria
- One way to prevent STI infection is to use condoms consistently
How can we spread the word?
Spread the word, not STIs!
Women’s Health West, together with the Action for Equity partnership, have installed a series of condom vending machines across the western region of Melbourne. The aim of these machines is to increase access to affordable contraceptives in a discrete, safe and non-judgemental way.
