HIV: What you need to know

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.

For free hard copies of the multilingual booklet please complete the order form on the MHAHS website and email to

The booklet can also be downloaded from the MHAHS website.
