Are you an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health worker or health practitioner? Come ‘show and tell’ the work you’ve been doing in your community at the Deadly Sex Congress.
Presenting your work can be a daunting prospect – but it doesn’t have to be! The Deadly Sex Congress is now welcoming expressions of interest from speakers in a supportive environment on the topics that matter to you.
What is the Deadly Sex Congress?
The Deadly Sex Congress is an annual forum designed to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers and health practitioners, community workers in relevant sectors, and those transitioning into sexual health or blood-borne virus (BBV) service delivery. It offers attendees an opportunity to update their knowledge, build their capacity, share stories, and learn about emerging issues in BBVs and STIs. With a focus on hepatitis C, HIV, syphilis, harm reduction, contact tracing, men’s and women’s business, healthy relationships, sexuality, and gender diversity, there is a wide range of potential presentation topics for you to choose from.
What sort of topics could I do my ‘show and tell’ on?
You can put forward a presentation on anything you’re working on related to sexual health and BBVs. Some examples of topics you could present on include:
- Point of care testing (POCT)
- Screening and testing in practice
- Contact tracing programs/initiatives
- Hepatitis, HIV and STI programs/initiatives
- Community engagement programs/initiatives
