A delegation from the Korea Alliance to Defeat AIDS visited the Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service (MHAHS) on 18th May.  Led by Jang Tae Yong, Director of Gyeongnam Provincial Government, 11 members of the Alliance attended an information session on how the health care system responds to the needs of people from diverse cultural backgrounds in NSW.

The director of the Diversity Programs and Strategy Hub, Sydney Local Health District, Barbara Luisi, welcomed the opportunity to meet with the delegates.

“Hearing a different perspective is an important element of how we approach our work at the Diversity Hub. We appreciate the delegations’s interest in our work and hope the information presented gave them useful insights into how we work as much as they inspired us in our work with diverse communities, including our Korean community in NSW,” said Ms Luisi.
The delegates were provided with a range of presentations on the HIV response in NSW, the HIV testing and prevention campaigns and the HIV biomedical prevention. A range of Sydney Local Health Districts, including RPA Sexual Health Clinic, HIV and Related Programs (HARP) Unit, Health Promotion Unit and MHAHS were involved in arranging the presentation.
