For Doctors, Nurses, Health Workers

This section provides useful resources to enhance clinical practice in remote communities, with a focus on engaging with young people on the need to test regularly for STIs and BBVs.

These resources can assist in orientation of temporary locum staff and new recruits, as well as in training and professional development.

You can subscribe to, and view, our regular eNewsletters for updates on release of new Young, Deadly, Free resources, and on STI and BBV surveillance data – including on the syphilis outbreak.
