Sexual health checks

Conducting sexual health checks is an essential prerequisite to diagnosing and treating sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs). Clinicians are legally required to notify their local public health unit of STIs and BBVs of public health significance.

The Australian STI Management Guidelines provide information on conducting sexual health checks.

The Communicable Disease Control Guidance and Information: A-Z provides clinical guidelines, notification forms, data and easy to read fact sheets for all notifiable conditions in Queensland.

Testing people at risk

Groups most at risk of sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS and viral hepatitis are:

  • men who have sex with men
  • people who inject drugs
  • young people
  • sex industry workers
  • people in custodial settings
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
