Clinic 34 is a specialised sexual health service that provides testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and blood-borne viruses (BBVs) in the Northern Territory. AHCSA and Clinic 34 share a long and strong working partnership grounded in our common goal of curbing sexually transmitted infections and blood-borne viruses in Aboriginal communities.

The 14th and 15th of February saw the Aboriginal Sexual Health Workshop (ASH) take place in Darwin NT. Designed by Clinic 34's Tash and Kat, the event was aimed at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander professionals in the youth, community, education, and health sectors (clinical and non-clinical).



Workshop sessions encompassed diverse topics including STIs, community experiences, LGBTQ+ wellbeing, and women's yarning circles. AHCSA was invited to co-facilitate and share SA-specific work being done by our Sexual Health team, with a focus on the Rainbow Tick LGBTQ+ accreditation.

STIs exact a disproportionate toll on the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people in the Top End and across Australia. The Clinic 34 and AHCSA teams look forward to pooling knowledge and resources - not just to test, treat, and raise awareness about STI’s and BBV’s, but also and most importantly to empower community-led solutions. Thank you to the organisers of Aboriginal Sexual Health Workshop!
