Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

The Sustainable Development Goals

What are the Sustainable Development Goals?

This week (25-27 September), the SDGs will be adopted at the United Nations Summit in New York.

These goals will shape the future of all people in all places for the next 15 years. All 193 United Nations Member States, including New Zealand, have committed to achieving 17 SDGs by 2030. The SDGs include social, economic and environmental goals.

Top 5 SDG facts

The SDGs:

  • Are made up of 17 goals and 169 targets
  • Come into effect on 1 January 2016
  • Are universal – for the entire world
  • Highlight the urgent need to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls
  • Pledge to leave no one behind

What do the SDGs mean for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)?

Improving SRHR will be central to achieving the SDGs. Investing in SRHR is one of the most cost-effective investments that can be made towards sustainable development.

In addition, two of the SDG targets focus specifically on achieving universal access to sexual and reproductive health.

  • Target 3.7: “By 2030 ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health care services, including for family planning, information and education, and the integration of reproductive health into national strategies and programmes.”
  • Target 5.6: “Ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights as agreed in accordance with the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development and the Beijing Platform for Action and the outcome documents of their review conferences.”
