Sexual Health Promotion and Education Research
(SHPER)

ARCSHS, La Trobe University

About

The Sexual Health Promotion and Education Research (SHPER) program focus on the sexual health, rights, well-being, and education of people in Australia. The program is run by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University and headed by a team of researchers across sociology, public health, psychology, and gender and sexuality studies. 

We partner and work with several organisations in health and wellbeing, sexual health and education, mental health and wellbeing, and gendered violence prevention sectors to produce and translate research to support the sexual health and wellbeing of Australia-based communities.
