What We Talk About And Why

Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

Sexually Transmitted Infections are just a fact of life, like a cold or flu. They’re not punishment for ‘bad behaviour’ any more than catching a cold is punishment for going out to a coffee shop where someone else has a cold. Our videos give accurate medical information about STIs and de-stigmatize them – framing them as simply a part of life. This helps people feel more comfortable to access any medical care they may need.
