In the last five to ten years there has been an increase in HIV diagnoses among people and their partners travelling to and from regions of high HIV prevalence. Approaches used in the past need to be adapted to respond to a context where people are more mobile.
Designed to support the strategic direction of the Seventh National HIV Strategy (2014-2017), this new report shines a spotlight on the context and types of mobility, differences in HIV diagnoses across Australia relating to migrant and mobile populations and the need for more targeted responses. The report is the result of collaboration between the Western Australian Centre for Health Promotion Research (WACHPR), the WA Sexual Health and Blood-borne Virus Applied Research and Evaluation Network (SiREN) and the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), as well as consultation across the HIV and migrant health sector.
