FITTER | HAPPIER: Women and STI’s

Thursday 22nd March / presented by Jorja Keay

These days it's especially important to be talking about sexual health, given the recent increase in Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI's)...latest statistics show that STI's such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia and syphilis are on the rise in Perth) and that out of the more than 11,500 chlamydia cases in WA last year; atleast 29% of these cases were reported to be among heterosexual women in their twenties.  with some of the biggest increases being recorded within women.
