WA Sexual health forum



The 2012 forum is entitled Yarning from the heart by the sea. The WA Sexual health forum brings together people who work in Aboriginal sexual health to talk, share, network, and inspire. This forum is open to all workers and interested people with connections to sexual health work within mainstream and Aboriginal communities.

The presentations across the two days will relate to several themes, including men's and women's sexual health, community partnerships, prison health, clinical issues, and creative ways of inspiring young people. Some of the forum highlights include:

HealthInfoNet Cafe

The WA Sexual health forum was a two day event that took place at the Maritime Museum in Fremantle, WA. Presentations and workshops reflected the forum's theme Yarning from the heart by the sea, and broadly focused on the following topics: service delivery; programs and projects; research; ways of working; and skill building.

Belinda Urquhart from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet held an internet café on day one of the forum. Delegates were interested in learning about the type of information accessible on the HealthInfoNet website, particularly information pertaining to sexual health, hepatitis, and HIV/AIDS. The WA Sexual health forum was attended by around 100 delegates.
