Toni Tonge
01:13:14
if you had previously been vaccinated for small pox, should serology be checked to see if immunity is still there?
joy Rowland
01:13:22
Given this is not only an STI in it's normal form how long would the public health physicians predict before this illness is equally being seen in other adults and children? the MSM predominance is likely to be short-lived and the stigma is then a bigger problem preventing heterosexuals from presenting with what is presented as an MSM disease.
Darryl O’Donnell on Bunurong land (he/him)
01:15:00
Community information for gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men available from acon.org.au (NSW and beyond) and thorneharbour.org (Victoria, SA and beyond)
Phillip Carswell

Can ASHM/AFAO put out a joint statement to the media to try and reframe the discussion away from racism/homophobia?
Darryl O’Donnell on Bunurong land (he/him)
01:18:02
@Philip - very happy to discuss that from AFAO end with ASHM. We're working in lockstep, and a joint front to media is a good idea
