PhotoVoice was an Indigenous Australian sexual health initiative of Marie Stopes International Australia (now Dr Marie) and the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation. The project involved Indigenous youths aged between 13 and 17 years from Mildura, Shepparton, and Warrnambool. The youths were trained in photography and asked to used photographs and writing to talk about their daily lives using sexual health as a focus.
The project identified several key issues including: substance abuse, teenage pregnancy, sexual abuse, boredom, HIV/AIDS, sexually transmissible infections, and condom and health service accessibility. The photographs and accompanying dialogue were then published in a book. This project provided the information neccessary to tailor future sexual health initiatives to the specific needs of Indigenous youth.
