Sexual and Reproductive Health during COVID-19 (coronavirus)
We are conducting an online survey to explore the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic on the sexual and reproductive health of people aged 18+ who are living in Australia. We want to answer questions like: are people having more or less sex during the pandemic? Are people still using dating apps to hook-up? Will we have a COVID-19 baby boom? Can people still access essential sexual and reproductive health products like sanitary items and contraception? Are people putting off going to their doctor for a sexual health check?
COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the nature of intimate relationships and sexual practices and will continue to impact our lives for many years to come. The survey will be repeated regularly so we can see how things change over time.
