A survey has been launched to develop a greater understanding of how overseas-born people living in Australia think and act in relation to sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood-borne viruses (BBVs).

STIs and BBVs affect all people living in Australia. Finding out more about  the knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of migrant communities  will help determine whether Australian health services are meeting their needs and what improvements can be made.

This study is being led by Curtin University in Western Australia in partnership with universities and community organisations in other states including NSW.

People born in South-East Asia, North-East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa and living in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Victoria or Western Australia are encouraged to complete the survey. You don’t have to give your name, which means your information cannot be identified.

The survey is available here.
