Sexual Health Week 16-20 September 2024

Sexual Health Week invites all South Australians to have conversations around improving our sexual health and relationship wellbeing.

Unfortunately many people feel embarrassed talking about their sexual health, Sexual Health Week hopes to invite destigmatising conversations about sexual health in a fun and positive way.

Sexual Health Week is the perfect excuse to host an event as part of your group or organisation.

It can be as simple or creative as you like.

For example:

  • Host a morning tea that focuses on respectful relationships.
  • Create a youth event with games that encourage people to think about safety, pleasure and respect.
  • Share information around sexual health messaging in your next meeting or on your social media.
  • Include top resources for sexual health in your next newsletter.
  • Display posters and include resources in your organisation that encourage the normalisation of sexual health.
