Abstract

This evaluation reports on the efficacy of six projects in improving the sexual health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people. Specifically the projects sought to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people accessing testing and treatment services for sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and bloodborne viruses (BBVs), reduce risk behaviours, and contribute to best practice. Over a three year period, six-monthly data (quantitative and qualitative) was collected on a range of indicators, which were used to assess the effectiveness of the projects. The evaluation findings report on three areas: governance and management; risk reduction; and services. The evaluation also identified the key features of a successful sexual health project, and of equal importance, acknowledges the lessons learned.
