 iusti

A joint meeting between the International Union for Sexually Transmitted Infections –Asia Pacific, the NZ Sexual Health Society and the Australasian Sexual Health Alliance.

This is an opportunity to participate in a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary networking event at a  time when countries are finding it challenging to maintain sustainable sexual health service delivery.

Conference Theme: He muka nō te taura whiri', 'Many Strands Make up one Rope' 

The proverb refers to the many strands that make up one rope. When the rope is tightly bound, it symbolises unity and strength. When the rope starts to unravel however, it threatens stability and weakens the effectiveness of the rope to the function as it was intended. The Congress is focusing on bringing together the many strands of sexual health in order to provide stability and strength to the sexual health workforce and strengthening bonds between specialists, GPs, nurses, researchers, health promoters, educators and others in Public Health working in the field of sexually transmissible infections including HIV & AIDS and sexual and reproductive health.

    Despite provision in the New Zealand Curriculum and strong support from young people, whanau, community members,  teachers and researchers, sexuality and health education continue to be under-delivered in New Zealand schools.

Hosted by the University of Auckland Faculty of Education and Social work, members of the national Sexuality and Health Education Experts Group join with teachers and
    young people. Join us for robust debate, discussion and research-informed thinking about the future of sexuality and health education in schools.
