Abstract

The 1994 Health Promotion Survey was the first large state-wide telephone survey of randomly selected respondents in New South Wales, Australia, conducted by the state Department of Health. In addition to general health questions, the number of sexual partners in the last 12 months was asked of respondents 50 years and under, condom use was asked of respondents sexually active in the past year aged 40 and under and attitudes towards HIV/AIDS were asked. The majority of respondents had one sexual partner in the last 12 months (77.5 per cent), 10.2 per cent had had two or more sexual partners and 12.3 per cent had had no sexual partners in the past year. Condom use 'always' was reported by 21.1 per cent of men. The results confirm other sexual health research that has highlighted men and younger persons as at highest sexual health risk.
