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.

Jointly produced by the Remote STI and BBV Project — Young Deadly Free, and the Young, Deadly and Syphilis Free Project these resources have been developed for Doctors, Nurses and Health Workers working with young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote communities. Information is provided with key sexually transmitted infection (STI) and blood borne virus (BBV) data and with tips for addressing common barriers to testing.
Health professionals who are new to working in remote communities can find the context challenging, and be unsure of cultural sensitivities. To assist we have produced videos providing background on the STIs and blood borne viruses affecting remote communities. The videos include information on epidemiology, with experienced Doctors, Nurses and Health Workers sharing their strategies for normalising offering testing, communicating with young people about sexually transmitted infections, sex and sexuality issues.
