Developing the Health Literacy Framework – The central role of Community Advocates

Background: The Health Literacy Framework project is a three-year initiative (2019-21) which aimed to improve HIV-related health literacy at the individual, community, organisational, sectoral, health system, and societal levels. It focused on engaging diverse cohorts of PLHIV who have not benefited equally from recent successes across the HIV care continuum. These included positive women, heterosexual men, people from Asian and Latin American backgrounds, and people who inject drugs.

Living with HIV and injecting drugs: A health literacy community consultation

Living with HIV and injecting drugs: A health literacy community consultation

Background: People living with HIV (PLHIV) experience greater levels of stigma and discrimination than their HIV-negative peers, impacting on their health and quality of life. People who inject drugs (PWID) are among the most stigmatised groups in society and are disproportionately affected by HIV and other blood borne viruses. (such as HIV and hepatitis C). Furthermore, PWID experience the negative impacts of social stigma associated with intravenous drugs use, compounded by criminalisation of illicit drugs across Australia. NAPWHA, with support from AIVL has undertaken a community consultation to understand the dual experience of living with HIV and injecting drugs as part of the Health Literacy Framework Project, which aims to provide insights about diverse sub-populations of PLHIV in Australia. The research was led by Pilot Lead, Brent Clifton. This poster was presented at the Joint HIV&AIDS & Sexual Health Conference 2022.
