Indigenous Health Workers sexual and reproductive health skills

 

Overview

This training program seeks to improve the sexual and reproductive health of Indigenous Australians residing in rural Queensland. Specifically the program will aim to reduce the rates of sexually transmissible infections, unintended pregnancies, and sexual assault. To achieve the aims of the program, Indigenous Health Workers (IHW) will receive training in sexual and reproductive health to increase their knowledge, skills, and confidence in addressing such issues in their communities. Ongoing support and mentoring will also be provided to the IHW to assist them in implementing appropriate health promotion activities.
