The Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health report (2002) noted that providing the general Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce with the skills needed to deal with STIs and BBVs—in the absence of specialised staff—is a continuing requirement. In particular, Aboriginal Health Workers in youth roles, in primary healthcare services, and drug and alcohol workers are priority groups to be skilled in STI and BBVs prevention, testing, treatment and care. This training should be linked to competency-based training for Aboriginal Health Workers.
