2016 Annual Surveillance Report of HIV, viral hepatitis, STIs

The Kirby Insitute's Annual Surveillance Report reveals that the number of HIV notifications newly diagnosed in Australia has remained stable for the past four years, with 1,025 new diagnoses in 2015. With the expansion of key HIV services in Australia, more people are being tested and receiving treatment. 

In contrast, HIV rates in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men have double in the past five years. 



Rates of chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis are highest among young people, men who have sex with men and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
