New national BBVs and STIs strategies 2014-2017

The Department of Health is leading the drafting of the five new National Blood Borne Virus and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategies 2014-2017. The department is welcoming submissions to date and is working to capture this input into the strategies.

The National BBV & STI Strategies 2014-2017 require all Australian governments, clinicians, researchers, community and professional organisations and individuals to commit to setting the direction for a coordinated response to addressing the rising rates of BBVs and STIs.

The draft National HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and STI Strategies 2014-2017 are now available for public comment. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander BBV and STI Strategy will be available for comment shortly.

The online survey for the public consultation of the National BBVs and STIs Strategies 2014-2017 can be accessed on the Department of Health web site here.
