This surveillance report provides information on the occurrence of blood borne viruses (BBVs) and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia. The purpose of the report is to encourage and support discussion on ways forward in minimising the transmission risks, as well as the personal and social consequences of these infections within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The report is produced in a format that is intended to be accessible to a wide range of health service providers and consumers and includes information on:

  • medical and epidemiological terms
  • summary of main findings
  • main findings for specific BBVs and STIs
  • methodological notes.
