Sexual Health Program

The Sexual Health Program engages in research about the epidemiology, surveillance, microbiology, clinical management, and prevention of sexually transmissible infections (STIs). Our research includes studies on chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhoea, human papillomavirus infection, herpes simplex virus infection and HIV infection. We work closely with key populations for STI control such as youth, gay men, sex workers, Aboriginal people, prisoners, and travellers.

Methodologies used in our research range from descriptive epidemiology with novel analytical techniques, molecular epidemiology, enhanced surveillance strategies, data linkage studies, social and behavioural research, test evaluations, managing antimicrobial resistance, evaluating and improving health care delivery, legal and policy research, anthropology, and biomedical prevention.

We coordinate a national surveillance network of 50 specialist sexual health services; and colloborate with research laboratories in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
