Young people aged 16–26 living in New South Wales are invited to take part in an online survey about sex and their social lives being conducted by researchers from the University of New South Wale’s Centre for Social Research in Health.
Researchers are aiming for around 2,000 young people to complete the survey, called ‘Project 1626, Speak UP’. The chief investigator for the survey, Dr Philippe Adam, says that sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are rising among young people, and there is still insufficient knowledge about condom use and STIs among youth. The survey will help researchers understand what young people are doing and how much they know; this will then enable researchers to develop ways of teaching young people to be safe.
To take part in the survey, go to: http://project1626.csrh.org/
All information will be treated in the strictest confidence; participants are asked to be totally honest with all their answers.
Some questions of an explicit nature may offend.
