What it means to have HIV

A new video has been produced which aims to help people diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) to understand and manage their condition.

Antiretroviral medication has been the cornerstone in transforming the HIV epidemic from an era when a HIV diagnosis meant a diagnosis with a terminal condition, to today, where HIV is regarded as a chronic but manageable condition, typically managed through a simple daily tablet regimen.

The new video resource provides important information regarding living with HIV, and is essential viewing, particularly for those recently diagnosed, and for people with an interest in understanding how HIV is managed today.

The video was commissioned by the Sexual Health and Blood-borne Virus Program, and the project was led by HepatitisWA with guidance provided from Aboriginal community members and health service providers.

Free clinic appointments for under 18s

We had such a great response to our September promotion that we’ve decided to extend it until the end of the year – under 18s are still free! No excuses now!
