Event description

Description

You are invited to attend the Annual CCS Public Lecture. In 2019, the lecture will be presented by Professor Christopher Fairley from the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre.

Late one night in Melbourne, Bob got syphilis because he had sex with a man with syphilis. Many other men had sex with other men that night and did not get syphilis. Bob did use a condom, but condoms don’t always protect against syphilis. So let me ask you “Whose fault was it that Bob got syphilis?” The answer to this question matters a great deal, because it leads to a solution to the problem. And currently syphilis cases in Melbourne are rising rapidly; so we do desperately need a solution.

Christopher Fairley is Director of the Melbourne Sexual Health Centre and Professor of Public Health at Monash University. He holds three specialist medical fellowships from the College of Physicians (Infectious Diseases), Faculty of Public Health and Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine. He is an editor of the Journal ‘Sexual Health’. His principle research interests are the public health control of sexually transmitted diseases and the effectiveness of clinical services. He has supervised 27 doctoral students to completion. He has 662 review journal publications and sits on the boards of IUSTI and ISSTDR.
