Welcome to Let Them Know

This website has been developed by Melbourne Sexual Health Centre to help people who have been diagnosed with Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Mycoplasma genitalium, Syphilis and Trichomonas to tell their sexual partners that they might also be at risk.

It also provides local service information for:

• NSW health residents, this is supported by NSW STI Programs Unit.

• Qld residents, this is supported by the Qld Department of Health Sexual Health website

Ensuring partners are tested and treated is an important way of controlling the spread of this infection. As well as frequently asked questions, this website includes examples of conversations, emails, text messages (SMS) or letters you can use in informing your partner. It even allows you to send an SMS or email to your partner directly from the site, either personally or anonymously.  Or, if you prefer, you can ask your doctor to help.





WARNING: Some people may react badly to being told they are at risk of an STI. If you think one of your partners could become abusive on hearing this news, do not tell them yourself. Instead, use our anonymous email, SMS or letter or ask your doctor.
