Sexual Health in NZ
Sexual Health in NZ - A Journey Through Time
Diane Shannon has devoted her career as a public health advocate to promoting sexual health. From the 1970s, she has been at the forefront of abortion law reform, the women’s refuge movement, HIV/AIDS education, and more current issues such as young people and online porn. Other current work involves addressing the resurgence of syphilis, period poverty and promoting the HPV vaccine. Diane’s presentation will show how far we have come and how attitudes have evolved, though there is always more to be done.
This ‘journey through time’ is an uplifting personal herstory and also a tribute to the many courageous women and men who’ve worked over the decades to make sexual health information and services acceptable and widely available.
