For those who enjoy Humping


Promoting Sexual Health in a Fun and Positive Way to Young People As Youth Week celebrations kick off, NSW Health reminds young people to look after their health using this year’s message: “Hump Safe this Hump Day. Carry a condom”. Hump Day (5 April) aims to promote the importance of sexual health and STI prevention in a fun and positive way during Youth Week, which runs from 31 March – 9 April. NSW Health and the Department of Family and Community Services have joined forces to offer youth workers and services across the state sexual health resources and activities to mark the day, including a number of fun competitions. Southern NSW Local Health District will be taking part and supporting a range of local events and activities promoting sexual health messages to young people. Activities for Youth Week 2017 can be found on local Council websites or at: www.youthweek.nsw.gov.au Alison Nikitas HIV & Related Programs (HARP) Manager said sexual health is an essential but sometimes overlooked part of being a healthy young person. “The rates of the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) chlamydia are high among young people. In the last six months of 2016, 83% of Chlamydia notifications within Southern NSW Local Health District were reported in the age group 15-29. Youth Week provides an opportunity to join people, talk openly about the importance of sexual health and where they can get confidential advice and sexual health check-up in their local area,” Alison Nikitas said. STIs are prevented by practicing safe sex, using condoms and water-based lube. However, if you haven’t always had safe sex, testing, treatment and information is available through your local GP or at Community Health Centres in Queanbeyan, Bega, Moruya, Bateman Bay, and Goulburn. Further information can be accessed at the NSW Sexual Health Infolink www.shil.nsw.gov.au on: 1800 451 624 and for information about your local Sexual Health Clinic.
