Sexual and reproductive health
Melton City Council is involved in Action for Equity, a regional plan to address sexual and reproductive health in Melbourne’s west.
As part of this project, Council has been involved in a Condom Vending Machine trial from August 2015 – September 2016. The aim of the project is to increase access to condoms for at-risk groups, and subsequently reduce sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unwanted pregnancies.
Six condom vending machines have been installed in three locations, including Hannah Watts Park, Melton Library and Learning Hub, and Caroline Springs Leisure Centre. The machines are still in place following the trial and will be reviewed in 2017.
The findings of the pilot project are available in the Evaluation Report
