Yarning about STIs

Yarning about STIs is a resource for Aboriginal health workers, and other clinical, education and welfare professionals working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people.

The Yarning About... series of resources provide easy-to-communicate messages about -

  • sexuality
  • puberty
  • parenting
  • sexual health
  • contraception
  • safe sex
  • sexually transmissible infections

They use a conversational approach by presenting five community members who share their concerns and also their knowledge on reproductive and sexual health issues.

The characters of Aunty Lee, Uncle Peter and young people Charles, Keewa and Janayah were designed by an Aboriginal artist to promote healthy choices about contraception and STIs.
