I worked in HIV/AIDS education/prevention in Qld throughout the 90s, and saw the benefits of education. I understand the lower economic but also personal, health and social costs of prevention rather than treatment or cure.

If you cut funding to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander sexual health prevention programs you will increase sexual diseases and that together with lack of services means that you are not contributing in the closing the gap strategy that each government takes the time to support:

I am signing this petition in support to the 2 Spirits organisation. If this organisation is de funded there will be an increase in HIV/AIDS in the Cape York Peninsula & Torres Strait remote communities. There will also be an increase in Suicide due to the lack of support for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander LBGTI community. These lives do matter & these organisations play an important role in supporting this community & are part of closing the GAP

I can fully realize the extent of it and know that it will continue to go on and on with funding cuts to many of the Services Aboriginal people have come to rely on.

These programs are vital to the health of communities, black and white.
