Sexual health and relationships in young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: results of the first Australian study of knowledge, risk practices and health service access for sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) among young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people: the Goanna Survey.

Alice Springs: Baker IDI Heart & Diabetes Institute

This survey is the first national survey of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in relation to sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) undertaken in Australia.

The survey involved collection of data comprising four areas:

  • demographics
  • knowledge of STIs and BBVs
  • risk behaviours, and
  • use of and access to health services.

Just under 3,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 16-29 were surveyed in every Australian jurisdiction. The project was initiated in 2010, and data collection occurred during 2011-2013.

The survey was funded by an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant with contributions from state and territory health departments, and was coordinated by peak Aboriginal health organisations in each jurisdiction.
