Yarning on - Aboriginal sexual health program

 

Overview

The Yarning on - Aboriginal sexual health program is an initiative created by SHine SA. SHine SA received funding through the National Indigenous Partnerships (Indigenous Early Childhood Development and Close the Gap on Indigenous Sexual and Reproductive Health) to develop and deliver sexual health education programs targeting Aboriginal young people, which aim to improve the sexual and reproductive health, wellbeing and safety of young Aboriginal South Australians. There are two programs funded under this initiative: the Investing in Aboriginal youth program and the Aboriginal focus schools program. Both programs aim to build the capacity of the community and workforce to develop culturally appropriate solutions to promote respectful relationships and improved sexual health literacy and therefore health and wellbeing outcomes for Aboriginal young people and their communities.
