Save YEAH

The Federal Government is defunding YEAH

Why at a time when young people’s STI rates are rising and condom use is declining is the Federal Government taking money away from young people trying to lead the change they desperately need for their sexual health education and culture?

Given over 75% of STIs are occurring amongst young people it’s such a counter productive message to send to young leaders, volunteering to be sexual health promoters, that suddenly their efforts to improve the disastrous state of sexual health education is not valued.

The decision by the Federal Government to defund YEAH is nothing less than outrageous; why throw away all that has been invested in building a highly successful grassroots youth organisation?

Here’s how you can help…
