The Sixth National HIV Strategy

1.2 Relationship to other strategies

Page last updated: July 2010

This strategy is one of a suite of five strategies aiming to reduce the transmission of STIs and BBVs in Australia, and the morbidity, mortality and personal and social impacts they cause. The five strategies cover the period 2010 to 2013 and include the:

  • Sixth National HIV Strategy (this strategy)
  • National Hepatitis B Virus Strategy
  • Second National Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy
  • Third National Hepatitis C Virus Strategy
  • Third National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy.
While the last four strategies listed focus on individual infections, this one focuses on the combined health impact these infections have on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia. Despite their specific focus, each strategy shares common structural elements. This is designed to support a coordinated effort and pinpoint common concerns. The shared structural elements are:
  • guiding principles (Chapter 4 in each strategy)
  • priority populations (Chapter 5)
  • similar priority action areas (Chapter 6)
  • issues around surveillance, research and work force development (later chapters).
