The NAPWHA HIV Health Literacy Framework (HLF) project was a three-year initiative (2019-2021) aimed to address the role of HIV health literacy in improving HIV-related health care and quality of life outcomes for all people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Australia. Through this initiative, NAPWHA engaged diverse and underrepresented and/or underserved communities in the co-design, delivery and evaluation of targeted pilot strategies and approaches tailored to their needs and based on action research findings. As a community-based organisation, NAPWHA continued to share the project learnings with other PLHIV partners. This objective was to ensure the emerging health literacy and community engagement framework and related co-design learnings could be applied to other HIV prevention and treatment campaigns thus, maximising impact across the diversity of all PLHIV in Australia.
