Sydney: Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council of NSW

This manual provides a framework for the planning, delivery, and evaluation of early detection and treatment programs for sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) in Aboriginal communities in New South Wales. The manual has been designed to be used by workers in a range of clinical settings, including: Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services, specialist sexual health services, general practice clinics, and other services delivering primary health care.

The manual is divided into four sections:

  • background information
  • early detection and treatment programs
  • planning, implementing, and evaluating early detection and treatment programs
  • tools and references.

Workers in the sexual health field are advised that this manual is not a comprehensive treatment manual, and should refer to national or state treatment guidelines and policies for complete information on treating STIs and BBVs.
