About Sexual Health Out and About - SHOUT - Working Party
A range of organisations across rural and regional Victoria have been working towards: improving access to sexual and reproductive health information; improving sexual and reproductive health service provision; and strengthening workforce capacity. Several successful strategies have been implemented with measurable outcomes.
Members of the youth/community sector have identified that they could increase their capacity to support the sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing of young people and establish stronger links with local organisations working in sexual and reproductive health.
The rationale for the establishment of a working party is to bring the rural youth/community sector and rural health sector together to build on the success of these outcomes, increase the coordination of effort and sharing of strategies across rural and regional Victoria, produce resources for the youth sector, and undertake an independent evaluation.
To date there are over 30 organisations and services across rural Victoria represented on the working party. If you are interested in joining, see below for the Terms of Reference and contact details.
