Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) don’t discriminate.

Anyone who is sexually active can get an STI without knowing it.

STI Testing Week is an annual campaign initiated by the Victorian Government’s Department of Health (DoH), to highlight the importance of regular STI testing.

Rates of STI cases in the state continue to increase, with the highest number of notified STI cases in 2019 since records began in 1991. STIs disproportionately impact on a number of our refugee and migrant communities.

As part of the 2021 STI Testing Week Campaign CEH is proud to launch a new website contains tailored resources addressing cultural and language issues across all aspects of STI testing, to help with conversations about sexual health with your clients from multicultural backgrounds.

It also hosts;

  • Links to Health Translations multilingual resources on testing, treating and more
  • In-language Ethnic Community Radio Announcements on 92.3FM – 3ZZZ
  • Targeted social media messaging and downloadable campaign material
