Media Briefing/Press ConferenceFrom: Australian Science Media Centre
Australia has recorded the lowest number of HIV diagnoses since 2001, according to the latest report from the Kirby Institute at UNSW Sydney. Last year there were 835 HIV diagnoses across the country, which represents a decline of 23 per cent over five years. But the drop was mainly among gay and bisexual men; with no similar decrease among heterosexuals or the Indigenous population. Join us for this online briefing, when experts will discuss the findings and their implications.
