New national Indigenous sexual health program

Date posted: 14 July 2010

The Australasian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) has received Commonwealth funding to develop and execute a national program aimed at improving the sexual health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Based on the premise that a strong primary healthcare workforce is vital in reducing the rate of sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs), the program will focus on enhancing the awareness, skills, and knowledge of healthcare providers who work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. An Expert Reference Group will comprise a key aspect of the program and the group will be composed of representatives from key stakeholder groups such as the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA). Funding for the program is provided for one year.
