HIV/AIDS & Sexual Health
In episode four, we speak with Matt Schmidt, who was a sexual health educator with the AIDS Action Council in 1999. Matt spoke to us about HIV/AIDS and gave great advice on how to prevent contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
More than 20 years on, Matt reflects on the stigma of STIs and changing community attitudes to sexual health. Reflecting on a career committed to promoting prevention, Matt wonders if the effectiveness of prophylaxis drugs means wearing a condom is the new taboo.
