Sydney Sexual Health Centre

 

Description

The Sydney Sexual Health Centre (SSHC) is a clinical, educational, research, and community-oriented centre offering specialist expertise in sexually transmissible infections (STIs), HIV/AIDS, and viral hepatitis. It provides free and confidential testing, support, treatment, and management of STIs, HIV/AIDS, and viral hepatitis. The Centre primarily provides care to people with symptoms of an STI, to people who have had sex with someone with an STI, and to people at an increased risk of STIs and HIV, such as Aboriginal people and young people aged 24 years and under.

In addition the SSHC provides a counselling service, a needle and syringe program, and a sexual health Infoline whereby people can access information and advice from sexual health nurses. A range of specialist on-site and off-site services are also available at the Centre. The SSHC is staffed by specialist doctors, nurses, counsellors, health promotion officers, researchers, and administration staff, and provides professional development and support to health professionals through on-site education and training.
