An evaluation of Aboriginal sexual and reproductive health and viral hepatitis program in selected Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services
This program will examine changes in service delivery within selected Aboriginal community controlled health services (ACCHSs) throughout NSW.
The aims of the project are:
- to improve health service practices in diagnosing, testing and clinically managing sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood-borne viral (BBVs)infections in Indigenous adolescents aged 16-25 years
- to improve uptake and completion of treatment for Indigenous people aged between 16-54 years who are living with viral hepatitis B or C
- to examine relationships between client knowledge of sexual and reproductive health issues, choices and options, and behaviours and the way they relate to health service utilisation and STIs and BBVs among 16-25 year olds.
STIs for Indigenous adolescents aged 16-25 years and BBVs for Indigenous patients aged 16-54 years will be monitored over time.
