On World AIDS Day 2019, The Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service launched a new multilingual HIV resource: HIV. What you need to know.
Available in eight languages – English, Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese – this free booklet provides priority culturally and linguistically diverse communities with all the most up-to-date information on HIV prevention, testing and treatment in NSW.
Developed in consultation with communities, the booklet is for anyone interested in finding out about HIV, with a particular focus on those at risk and people recently diagnosed with HIV.
Recent increases in HIV notifications and late diagnoses in NSW among some culturally and linguistically diverse populations suggest a resource which provides easy to understand, current information is timely.
The booklet can also be downloaded from the MHAHS website.
