Sexual and Reproductive Health Fact Sheets
Produced in 2019, these sex positive fact sheets provide a snapshot of the sexual and reproductive health status of women in Melbourne’s northern metropolitan region (NMR). The fact sheets present data and information about fertility, contraception, unintended pregnancy, sexually transmissible infections, cervical screening, HPV immunisation, negotiating consent, and sexual assault. These fact sheets also explore the influences of gender norms, roles, expectations and power dynamics on sexual and reproductive health.
At WHIN, we believe that all women have the right to good sexual and reproductive health across the lifespan.
If you wish to access our earlier fact sheets, for example those released in 2016, please contact our sexual and reproductive health coordinator on 9484 1666.
With our partner Women’s Health Victoria, we present recordings of our two-part forum series Addressing Reproductive Coercion.
‘Side by Side’ is a sexual and reproductive health, respectful relationships education program designed to meet the nuanced learning needs of young women from communities where FGC is traditionally practised. The program is culturally sensitive and complements existing sexual and reproductive health and respectful relationships education while also reinforcing primary prevention of violence against women messages.
This resource focuses on addressing the significant sexual and reproductive health issues in the northern metropolitan region.
Female Genital Cutting (FGC) Fact sheets
The fact sheets contain information such as why FGC happens, where it is practised, the different types of FGC, how it impacts on women’s and girls’ health, and where to get help and information.
