Finding the right information at the right time is critical if people are to stay healthy and to support our global goal to eliminate AIDS by 2030, according to Barbara Luisi, Director of the Diversity Programs and Strategy Hub at Sydney Local Health District.

As part of the state-wide Live Healthy with HIV campaign during the 2020 HIV Awareness Week, the Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service (MHAHS) is encouraging people from culturally and linguistically diverse background to access multilingual booklet, HIV. What you need to know to stay healthy.

“Our booklet explains what it means to live with HIV as well as how people can protect themselves from HIV. The resource has up to date information on HIV test and treatment and a comprehensive list of care and support services to allay people’s concerns about living with HIV. It is a great resource to have and share.”

Available in 8 languages, the e-booklet can be downloaded here and free hard copies are available to order.

A number of events are being organised across Australia to support the HIV awareness campaign. Diversity Hub is supporting the campaign by undertaking an ethnic media campaign across 8 languages as well as partnering with the local HARP unit to organise information stalls in the local area.
