Aims and Objectives

The aim of WA Sexual Health Week 2018 is to create an enabling environment for the WA community to improve their sexual health, through community engagement and collaborative partnerships.

Any grant applications would need to indicate which of the following objectives relate to the short community project:

  • Improving the acceptability of safer sex behaviour in target populations
  • Promoting the negotiation of safer sex with casual and regular partners within target populations
  • Decreasing the prevalence of STIs and blood-borne viruses (BBVs) and the burden of disease attributable to STIs and BBVs within the community
  • Reducing the shame and stigma associated with STIs and BBVs
  • Providing sexual health information, education and resources to target populations, including knowledge of available sexual health services
  • Improve health seeking behaviour to increase testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections

Grant applications do not need to meet all objectives.
