'MENOPAUSE MATTERS' A Menopause Information Evening for Women. Presented by The Canberra Menopause Centre.
Thursday 25th August 6.30pm – 9.00pm
Making informed decisions about sex is vital for young people yet, in many countries, sex education is confusing, limited or even overlooked altogether.
OP.ED If sex education is about protecting kids, it also needs to be about empowerment. When I was 19, I went to a GP to ask if two women could give each other sexually transmitted infections. The GP didn't pause to think, or flip open a book to check the facts. She responded, plainly, "No, they can't."
SHFPACT identifies the importance of all health workers in promoting and supporting the sexual and reproductive health of the Canberra community as well as reducing the barriers to improved sexual and reproductive health.
You’re just a few clicks away from a discounted consultation at SHFPACT!
SHFPACT strives to provide a high quality healthcare service. Our consultation times are generally longer than in general practice, and we provide a specialised reproductive and sexual health service. Quality care is however expensive to provide and the membership discount is one way we can make sure you receive the very best service and the time you need with our team of reproductive and sexual health doctors, nurses, counsellors and educators, without breaking the budget.
Parents and care-givers play an important role in the teaching of sexuality and relationships to young people. Most parents and carers know that, just like learning how to play or talk, sexual development is a part of human development and know that it will happen whether we talk to our children or not.
SHFPACT affirms that individuals with a disability are sexual beings, with the same diversity of sexual feelings, needs, and identities shared by all people in the community.
Providing sexuality and relationships education in schools is a rewarding and challenging task that teachers and educators should feel supported and confidant to do. SHFPACT has been supporting public, private and faith-based schools in Canberra to deliver effective, relevant, accurate and responsible sexuality education since the 1970s.
