We are pleased to announce the release of results for the latest Australia-wide sexual health survey of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, The GOANNA Survey 2.

The survey conducted between September 2017 and January 2020 included more than 1300 participants aged 16–29 years from urban, regional and remote parts of mainland Australia and was led by Professor James Ward of the University of Queensland (formerly of SAHMRI).

Questions focused on relationships, sexual behaviours, use of health services and knowledge about sexually transmissible infections, HIV and hepatitis C.
