Be Clear About Sex!

Be Clear About Sex!

Be clear about sex: the results of the sexual health lifestyle & co-creation campaign. On November 1, 2010, the youth campaign ‘Be clear about sex’ was started in the Netherlands. 17% of girls and 4% of boys experienced sexual transgressive behaviour, with consequences like anxiety, anger, shame, self-blame and distrust. The campaign aimed to prevent sexual transgressive behavior between young people between 12 and 18 years. STI AIDS Netherlands and Rutgers WPF developed the campaign on behalf of the Ministries of Health and Education. In 2014, a co creation part started, in which young youtube artists involved (a number of) young people. Central part of the campaign is a book with six short stories about sexuality written by Dutch youth writers. The stories are read by students (secondary education) during Dutch lessons. The book deals with issues that concern young people such as sending a nude picture, have never kissed, peer pressure to do ‘it’, dealing with strict parents and are in love with someone of the same sex. For more impact, the stories were also filmed. Under the guidance of professional filmmakers six teams of young filmmakers filmed the book in 30 days. The campaign was successful. In two weeks, 850 schools ordered 125.000 books. The six short movies got more than 200.000 views on YouTube.Gover.

HIV infection and access to HIV prevention services among men who have sex with men in some sentinel provinces in Vietnam in 2010 and 2012

Vietnam’s HIV sentinel surveillance system began collecting behavioral data among men who have sex with men (MSM) in 4 provinces in 2010 and expanded to 8 provinces in 2012. This data provides a better understanding of risk behaviors. The aim is to determine HIV prevalence and coverage of prevention services among men who have sex with men (MSM).

Understanding 'what's going on with our mob' - knowledge of STIs and BBVs as reported by young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the GOANNA survey

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people are a population prioritised in all national and jurisdictional STI and BBV strategies, largely because of higher notification rates of STI and BBV reported among this population. However very little is known of levels of knowledge of this population. A national cross sectional survey asking questions of knowledge, risk behaviour and health service utilisation was administered using hand held personal digital assistants at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community events in every jurisdiction during 2011-2013. Aboriginal organisations and staff were engaged at every level of the project ensuring a self determination approach was applied to this research.

Desire and risk: Sick, bad or 'hot'?

Some gay men find sexual behaviours that are high risk for HIV transmission especially desirable. Such desires, and acting on them, have often been portrayed in pathological terms. We investigated the desire for and practice of risky sex among Australian gay men. Pleasure and Sexual Health was an online survey of 2306 Australian gay men recruited during mid-2009.
