• HIV epidemiology in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples: Why is there a gap and how do we address it?

    A report on Dr James Ward’s presentation on day 1 of the Conference.

    Australia has seen a “relentless increase” in new HIV diagnoses in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) peoples, said Professor James Ward at the HIVAIDS Conference in Sydney today.

    This increase lies on a background of a reduction of new HIV diagnoses in non-ATSI populations, and highlights the ongoing inequity in health outcomes for Aboriginal people in Australia.
