In 2002 the then Minister for Health and Ageing, Senator The Hon Kay Patterson, requested independent reviews of the National HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C Strategies to be undertaken concurrently with the quinquennial reviews of the National Centres in HIV Research. The reviews were conducted through a single process, led by an overarching 'Lead Review Team' chaired by Professor Andrew Wilson. Small review panels were appointed to work on each of the specific review exercises. In broad terms, the Review Teams were asked to assess the extent to which the Strategies recommendations and guiding principles have been implemented or adopted and their appropriateness; and to provide advice that will inform the next phase of Australia's response to HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C. Each Review Panel prepared an individual Report and these have been published together as separate chapters.
