Quality of Life

NAPWHA is leading an ambitious campaign to promote good quality of life for all people with HIV by 2030. This builds on the landmark Australian Community Accord on Quality of Life for People with HIV, known as AusQOL. The Accord lays out a framework for action to achieve this goal and identifies four barriers and four enablers to consider and address in research, clinical practice, health promotion, and policy.

 The four barriers to good quality of life include stigma, distress, material insecurity, and isolation. The four enablers of good quality of life are belonging, meaning, care and support. These factors were identified through an extensive consultation carried out in 2021-22 with generous funding and practical support from ViiV Healthcare Australia.
