SHFPACT is now open for clinical and counselling services from Monday 10 January 2022.
Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT (SHFPACT) continues to provide consultations for a range of sexual and reproductive health needs. With the announcement of changing public health restrictions in the ACT, if you have not already had your appointment confirmed, please telephone Reception. All new appointment bookings will be confirmed after a telephone call.
Most clients will receive a text message to confirm their appointment. SHFPACT may have to cancel appointments at short notice due to the impact of COVID-19 exposure on our staff numbers, and we apologise for the inconvenience this may cause clients.
Consultations that do not require an examination or procedure will generally be provided by telehealth. If in doubt, please contact Reception directly to confirm the best appointment type for you.
To make an appointment in 2022, please contact us or call 02 6247 3077. Our staff will assist you to make an appointment with our doctors/nurses, or refer you to other clinicians as appropriate.

Based at SHFPACT, The Canberra Menopause Centre is a dedicated service for those seeking information, support and medical management of menopause symptoms.

Menopause has three stages: perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause.

Council and Executive Report
In another challenging year globally and locally as the COVID-19 pandemic and response evolved, we are proud to present this report as an overview and summary of SHFPACT’s wide range of activities. The adaptive capacity and flexibility demonstrated by the SHFPACT team in the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic set the organisation up well for responding to the high level of demand for clinical, education and training services that followed, and which was sustained across the whole financial year covered by this report and beyond.
Released to mark Intersex Day of Awareness 2021, Including Intersex: responding to issues affecting the educational experiences of intersex students in Australia is a new resource filling a gap in information and guidance about the needs and experiences of intersex people specifically for the school and education setting.
