Sydney: The Kirby Institute

This report provides information on the occurrence of blood borne viruses (BBVS) and sexually transmissible infections (STIs) among the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in Australia. The report is published by the Kirby Institute for the purposes of stimulating and supporting discussion on ways to minimise the risk of transmission of these infections as well as the personal and social consequences within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

This report is published annually as an accompanying document to the HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections in Australia annual surveillance report. It provides the main findings for HIV infection, hepatitis B&C and STIs. Unless specifically stated otherwise, all data provided in this report are to the end of 2015, as reported by 31 March 2016.
