The strategy aims to provide a framework for the efforts of all partners in the response to BBV and STI in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
It helps guide resourcing decisions and monitor progress and is informed by:
evaluation of progress made under the previous strategy (2014–2017)
the effectiveness of current and past responses in Australia and internationally
the identification of gaps and opportunities
consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, governments, community organisations, researchers, health professionals and other stakeholders.
This strategy is also informed by a range of surveillance data and research on BBV and STI and its impact on priority groups.
It is one of 5 national strategies that, together, outline a framework for coordinated response to BBV and STI in Australia.
