TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that: Canberra Sexual Health Centre is a valuable community institution in an outdated building that is no longer fit for purpose or able to meet the current or future demand for services. Further we believe the Centre is under-resourced to meet current demand.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to: Request ACT Health provide increased support for resource and infrastructure improvements at Canberra Sexual Health Centre. The undersigned urge the Government to undertake a needs assessment for a new Sexual Health Centre, with the possibility of a satellite site in the Gungahlin/Belconnen area, to meet the increasing needs of a growing Canberra population. Further we believe the Centre needs additional resourcing to meet current and future demand. This is imperative to support the community of Canberra.
