The life expectancy of Australians living with HIV has been steadily increasing and is approaching that of the general population. For them, and for the community organisations that serve and represent them, living simultaneously
with HIV and with the consequences of ageing is a ‘new frontier’. This report describes and synthesises the work that has been carried out by NAPWHA to address this challenge now and into the future.

The linkage to care Project aims to better understand the psychosocial and service related factors that influence engagement in the HIV continuum of care by people with diagnosed HIV.
This NAPWHA report is an analysis drawing together several years’ worth of data from the main pharmaceutical industry suppliers of compassionate access antiretroviral (ARV) therapy in Australia and combines this with, for the first time, data from the State and Territory jurisdictions to produce the most accurate estimate to-date of the number of Medicare ineligible PLHIV in Australia. It comes with recommendations for systemic improvements.
This discussion paper promotes a whole-of-sector approach to support PLHIV in their capacity to build resilience alongside a comprehensive effort to address HIV related stigma. It was a precursor to the NAPWHA Stigma and Resilience Framework resource published in...
This NAPWHA national strategic framework to address HIV stigma and build resilience capacity for people living with HIV is not a guideline, or a policy document. The information is intended for people to draw on in their work in a way that will encourage them to think about the building of resilience among people living with HIV as a legitimate goal of peer-led and other health and support services.
This report, published in 2013, has been produced as an official account of the collaboration between the National Association of People With HIV Australia (NAPWHA) and Igat Hope, the national positive people’s organisation in PNG. The report was commissioned by NAPWHA to record the outcomes of the decade-long partnership and to document the lessons NAPWHA has learned from the experience. The report is partly a re!ection on the part of the authors, but is also based on NAPWHA’s extensive records and archives of its work in PNG. The report draws on various evaluative documents that have been produced over the period of the partnership.
In this NAPWHA monograph published in 2009, the authors have described aspects of the recent trend in Australia of HIV exposure or transmission being pursued within a criminalisation framework. They have also documented how these cases have been prosecuted inconsistently across the country, and also how the cases have been represented in the broader public domain by various, and often inappropriate media coverage.
