The project seeks to develop a tool aimed at improving sexual health among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The majority of STIs are diagnosed and managed within the primary health care system and it is essential that the quality of care is high in order to reduce the rates of STIs. The tool and accompanying protocol will be developed in line with the current evidence for delivery of primary sexual health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and available for use in Aboriginal and Torres Islander primary health care services so as to reduce the high prevalence of STIs.
