Description

The Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO) launched two national peer-based posters in Sydney on 30 October 2004, as a health promotion resource for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sistergirls. The posters were designed to: empower Indigenous Sistergirls and transgender communities by raising HIV/AIDS awareness; address underlying issues such as isolation and discrimination; and promote positive self-esteem which in turn promotes individuals to engage in safer sexual practices, such as condom usage. The posters were developed in response to the National Indigenous gay and transgender consultation report and sexual health strategy, as was the AFAO strategy for responding to sexual abuse of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander gay men and Sistergirls.
The National Indigenous gay and transgender consultation report and sexual health strategy, and the AFAO strategy for responding to sexual abuse of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander gay men and Sistergirls, can be accessed online at the AFAO website.
