Watch the launch of the Australian HIV Peer Support Standards where we had with a lively discussion on the future of peer support practices in HIV and sexual health. This a recording from that took place online on 3 December 2020 with some peer practice superstars.
The Australian theme for this year’s World AIDS Day is Now More Than Ever. To mark the event, NAPWHA asked a wide range of community advocates and the leaders of our member organisations and partners in the response to reflect on what the theme means to them.
Overseas residents who are living with HIV, in Australia on a temporary visa and ineligible for Medicare, will gain access to HIV treatment and care thanks to new arrangements that Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, has agreed will be in place in 2021.
Australian HIV Peer Support Standards have been published by NAPWHA in 2020, aimed at providing an excellent framework to guide people who are living with HIV, either providing or accessing peer support. They also can be used by healthcare providers, community health workers in who provide client services within HIV organisations, or policy makers who are setting performance standards for the provision of peer support.
