This new Strategy is timely as the number of diagnoses of HIV in Australia has started to increase
in recent years. The Strategy has identiﬁed ﬁve priority areas for action to be addressed over the
next three years: development of a targeted prevention education and health promotion program
for HIV; improving the health of people living with HIV/AIDS; developing an effective response to
changing care and support needs; a review of the HIV Testing Policy; and the provision of a clearer
direction for HIV/AIDS research.
