Story: Child and youth health

Sexual-health poster

Sexual-health poster

Sexual health is an important component of youth health services. This poster uses very direct humour to encourage young people living in Taupō to visit the Cafe for Youth Health and have a chlamydia test. Chlamydia was one of the most common sexually transmitted infections to affect young people in the 2000s.
