MedTech The Key for Potential Elimination of HIV in NSW

The NSW Government has committed $21.9 million in 2018-19 to strengthen testing, treatment, and prevention with 47 state-funded Sexual Health Clinics also making testing easily accessible.

Due to the increase in HIV testing, the NSW Health HIV Strategy Data Report shows in 2018, NSW had the lowest annual number of notifications on record.

Dr. Kerry Chant, Chief Health Officer stated it is vital that people at risk use the technological resources available, such as increased testing facilities and clinical trialed drugs such as Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).

NSW Health is running HIV testing week from 1 – 7 of June.
