National strategies for blood borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections

Five new national strategies for blood borne viruses (BBVs) and sexually transmissible infections (STIs) have been endorsed by the Australian Health Ministers' Conference. For the next three years, these documents will guide policies in relation to the prevention, testing, treatment and more in relation to BBVs and STIs. The documents were developed with significant contributions from community stakeholders, research organisations, medical professionals and state and territory health departments. The five strategies are:

* The Sixth National HIV Strategy;
* The First National Hepatitis B Strategy;
* The Second National Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy;
* The Third National Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Strategy; and
* The Third National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Blood
Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy.
