      Abstract: Nima Iranpour, Gregory J. Dore, Marianne Martinello, Gail V. Matthews, Jason Grebely, Behzad Hajarizadeh
      During March 2016 to March 2017, a total of 935 individuals with HIV and hepatitis C co-infection initiated new highly curative hepatitis C treatment (direct-acting antiviral treatment), with 93% to 97% completing their prescribed treatment course. It is estimated that 41% of the total population with HIV and hepatitis C co-infection in Australia initiated hepatitis C direct-acting antiviral treatment during this time.

      When screening at-risk populations for chlamydia and gonorrhoea, pooling of individual urogenital, pharyngeal and anorectal specimens into one specimen near the point of care (POC) is feasible, offers potential cost and time savings, and is pertinent for low resource settings and screening programs. However, some reduction in diagnostic sensitivity of pooled specimens was observed in this study. A laboratory experiment conducted by us suggests this sensitivity may be improved by reducing the volume of urine used in the pooling method.

      In Mexico, public health services do not offer pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), and the medication is very expensive. This study analysed the perceptions around PrEP and their implications in Mexican men who have sex with men. In contrast with other qualitative research, the participants in this study focused on the organisation of public health services: scarce resources, inaccessible brand drugs, mistreatment and stigmatisation within medical services.

      Abstract: Dustin T. Duncan, Denton Callander, Lisa Bowleg, Su Hyun Park, Lauren Brinkley-Rubinstein, Katherine P. Theall, DeMarc A. Hickson
      Using data from a sample of 355 cisgender Black gay, bisexual and other sexual minority men in Mississippi and Georgia, we assessed whether stress may interact with experiences of incarceration to influence sexual health risk practices. A history of incarceration strengthened the extant associations and was associated with having more sex partners and condomless anal sex with casual partners.

      There have been limited studies examining the sexual behaviours among female sex workers (FSW) in Australia. This cross-sectional survey provided detailed sexual practices (e.g. kissing, condom use and number of clients for different types of sexual acts) among FSW in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Understanding the current sexual practices among FSW can inform the planning and designing of future sexual health education for FSW.

      Abstract: Jiali Tong, Chunni Zhang, Lei Zhang, Tao Xu, Jinghe Lang, Lan Zhu
      This article is a national population-based epidemiological survey of female low sexual desire disorder in mainland China. The prevalence of low sexual desire was 21.6%, and sexual desire was a noticeable predictor of sexual activity. A multifactorial assessment with a combination of psychological, social and physical interventions may be a good model for treatment strategies of low sexual desire.

      Abstract: Jacqueline Hendriks, Sue Fyfe, Dorota A. Doherty, Angela Jacques, Irene Styles, Martha Hickey, S. Rachel Skinner
      Despite evidence that attitudes can be powerful modifiers of sexual behaviour, we know little about adolescent attitudes as they relate to the issue of abortion. This study examined attitudes to abortion using a diverse sample of adolescents who had varying experiences of sexual activity and pregnancy. The findings have implications for anyone working with young people because attitudes were strongly associated with riskier sexual practices, along with an adolescent’s ability to comprehend the impact of a pregnancy.

      Abstract: Matthew Hogben, Patricia J. Dittus, Jami S. Leichliter, Sevgi O. Aral
      Advances in biomedical prevention call into question the role of social and behavioural science in sexually transmissible infection (STI) and HIV prevention. In this paper we present five individual- and population-level areas in which such expertise can be integrated with biomedical prevention. Committing expertise in these areas provides for the integrated approaches to prevention that best prevent STI and HIV.

      Abstract: Isabella Bradley, Rick Varma, Vickie Knight, Dimitra Iliakis, Leon McNally, Dean Jalocon, Neisha Jeoffreys, Sharon Chen, Anna McNulty
      Due to antimicrobial resistance, Mycoplasma genitalium can be one of the most complex sexually transmissible infections (STIs) to treat, and screening for this infection is not currently recommended in guidelines. We sought to determine the prevalence and rate of macrolide resistance of asymptomatic rectal M. genitalium in MSM and found close to 7% of men tested positive and, of these, 69% of isolates were macrolide resistant. As one of the largest studies in asymptomatic MSM, our findings will inform STI screening and treatment guidelines for this infection.

      Gay and other men who have sex with men of Asian background (GAM) are emerging as a pivotal group in efforts to eradicate HIV in Australia. This survey of 604 GAM residing in Sydney and Melbourne identified a significant proportion of non-HIV-positive men who engaged with frequent HIV and comprehensive STI screening. We further demonstrated statistically significant differences in sexual practices between those who engaged with testing initiatives and those who did not. These findings have implications for HIV service design moving forward.

      Abstract: Ryan Horn, Denton Callander, Bridget Haire
      Current sexually transmissible infection (STI) prevention strategies are imperfect in the combat against increasing bacterial STI incidence among gay and bisexual men in Australia. This study examined perceptions regarding the use of antibiotic pre-exposure prophylaxis for bacterial STIs (STI-PrEP). Future implementation studies of STI-PrEP should monitor the concerns expressed by participants in this study to aid effective implementation.

      This is the first systematic review and meta-analysis of key STI prevalence in Australian sex-on-premises venues (SOPVs). Men attending SOPVs are at high risk of sexually transmissible infections including HIV. Screening at SOPVs offers MSM access to testing and diagnosis. SOPVs are an important site for STI/HIV diagnosis.

      Abstract: Sheina Low, Rick Varma, Ruthy McIver, Tobias Vickers, Anna McNulty
      In the current era of antimicrobial stewardship, the practice of empirically treating asymptomatic contacts of gonorrhoea needs review. We sought the views of clinicians in a range of settings on the relative importance of a range of factors that influence treatment decisions, including the likelihood of infection and complications, the risk of onward transmission and the impact on patients and clinics. Although the majority of participants currently provide empiric treatment, there was significant support for a change in guidelines.

  • What do young women living in regional and rural Victoria say about

    • Authors: Emma Wagg, Jane Hocking, Jane Tomnay
      First page: 160
      Abstract: Emma Wagg, Jane Hocking, Jane Tomnay
      Chlamydia trachomatis is the most commonly notified sexually transmissible infection in Australia, yet infections are underdiagnosed. This qualitative study investigated young regional and rural women’s understanding of chlamydia and factors that prevent or delay testing. The findings revealed chlamydia infection was associated with considerable self-stigma. The most consistent factor affecting testing decisions was personal risk assessment. The results demonstrate an ongoing need for clinicians and health promoters to communicate prevalence, encourage regular screening and deconstruct stigma.

      We implemented an SMS-based health intervention targeting adolescents in Indonesia to increase sexual and reproductive health and smoking knowledge. We enrolled 555 people aged 16–24 years and demonstrated a significant increase in mean knowledge score between baseline and follow-up surveys. An SMS intervention was feasible, acceptable and efforts to scale up SMS interventions targeting young people are needed.

      Although studies seem to indicate that the prevalence of sexting has increased over time, there are no cohort studies that compare historic prevalence rates among similar groups of teenagers. Using data from a weighted sample of adolescents in Belgium, this study found that sexting prevalence increased between 2015 and 2017, even when accounting for smartphone ownership. The results suggest that factors outside of smartphone ownership may contribute to the increase in sexting behaviour and highlight the need for the development of age-appropriate sexting education.

  • Non-consensual sharing of personal sexually explicit imagery among young
           people in Australia: results from an online survey

      There has been significant media attention on the harms associated with non-consensual sharing of sexually explicit imagery. We surveyed young Australians aged 15–29 years; 13% stated that someone else shared sexually explicit imagery of them without their consent. Most participants did not report this incident to services or police, highlighting the need for non-judgmental education that promotes legal rights and actions to take in adverse situations.

  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae positivity in clients presenting as asymptomatic
           contacts of gonorrhoea at a sexual health centre

      Abstract: Sue Qian, Rosalind Foster, Christopher Bourne, Tobias Vickers, Ruthy McIver, Anna McNulty
      Initiating empirical antibiotic treatment for asymptomatic contacts of gonorrhoea, before the confirmation of positive results, is common practice. However, emerging global concerns of gonorrhoea antibiotic resistance throw the rationale for this practice into question. This retrospective study observed surprisingly low rates of gonorrhoea positivity at the Sydney Sexual Health Centre, and supports the move for guidelines to be changed.

  • How should we refer to people attending sexual health services; patients,
           clients, users or customers'

      Abstract: Colin Fitzpatrick, Aman Bedi, Mary Stewart
      Within the healthcare domain, commercial-sector terminology such as ‘client’, ‘customer’ and ‘user’ are replacing the previously acceptable collective noun, ‘patient’. Is the term we use important' We collected the responses of 581 individuals attending between August and October 2019. Overall, 372/496 (75%) unique responses reported a preference to ‘patient’, while 92/496 (19%) preferred ‘client’, 23/496 (5%) ‘customer’ and 9/496 (2%) ‘user’. In line with other published data, we acknowledge that people attending our service prefer to be referred to as ‘patient’ above all else.

      Abstract: Cheng-Chun Tai, Ruey-Yi Chou, Jiun-Yu Guo, Hsin-Pai Chen
      Although antibiotics are commonly used in clinical practice, some side effects caused by the medication are not fully understood or documented. Persistent low potassium concentrations in the blood irresponsive to treatment was found in a patient after using piperacillin/tazobactam. Through this case report, we want to highlight that a more cautious approach should be considered when using this drug in clinical practice.

  • Contextual and behavioural risk factors for sexually transmissible
           infections in young Aboriginal people in central Australia: a qualitative
           study

      Abstract: Colin Watson, Kirsty Smith, Ahmed Latif, Wendy Armstrong, James Ward, Rebecca Guy, Kate Senior
      High rates of sexually transmissible infections (STIs) have persisted in remote central Australian Aboriginal communities for over two decades, and yet risk factors for these are not well understood. This qualitative study explored behavioural and contextual risk factors for STIs in young Aboriginal people in central Australia and identified a strong association between travel, alcohol and casual sex as potential risk factors. The study highlights the need for ongoing, enhanced strategies to improve STI control.

  • Antimicrobial resistance of Neisseria gonorrhoeae in Jakarta, Indonesia: a
           cross-sectional study
    • Authors: Wresti Indriatmi, Rizky Lendl Prayogo, Hanny Nilasari, Lis Surachmiati Suseno

      Abstract: Wresti Indriatmi, Rizky Lendl Prayogo, Hanny Nilasari, Lis Surachmiati Suseno
      The resistance of Neisseria gonorrhoeae to antimicrobials is a significant public health concern, but data on resistance from developing countries, including Indonesia, are scarce. This study addresses this critical issue. The study findings are in line with those of previous studies: there was a high proportion of N. gonorrhoeae resistance detected to penicillin, tetracycline and levofloxacin, but no decreased susceptibility to extended-spectrum cephalosporins.

  • A descriptive analysis of young women's pornography use: a tale of
           exploration and harm
    • Authors: Angela C. Davis, Meredith J. Temple-Smith, Elise Carrotte, Margaret E. Hellard, Megan S. C. Lim

      Abstract: Angela C. Davis, Meredith J. Temple-Smith, Elise Carrotte, Margaret E. Hellard, Megan S. C. Lim
      Increased access to online pornography has led to concerns about the effect on young people’s sexual health. Despite viewing less often than young men, young women view pornography. This research aimed to describe pornography use and reflections on the influence of this use, among a sample of young Australian women. Findings reveal both positive and negative experiences among young women who view pornography and draw attention to the need for inclusive research methods to understand this complex sexual health issue.
