Animations can help explain the facts about STIs and BBVs in an engaging way that’s easy to understand, and not too confronting. We’ve produced these animations for young people to access directly via social media but they’re also great tools for community education.

As well as setting out the facts about STIs and BBVs, each of these animations aims to normalise STI and BBV testing, and address the stigma and shame we can feel when talking about sex, STIs and BBVs.

We have also translated some of our animations into local languages, see below.
