Surveillance Evaluation and Research Program

The Surveillance, Evaluation and Research program monitors the pattern of transmission of HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections (STIs) in Australia. We also conduct research and evaluation of public health interventions.

Our public health surveillance activities are conducted in collaboration with the Australian Commonwealth Government Department of Health, State and Territory health departments and collaborating networks. Each year we publish an Annual Surveillance Report which includes an analysis and interpretation of recent trends in new diagnoses of HIV, viral hepatitis and STIs. In these reports we also estimate prevalence and incidence of infection in key population subgroups.

We collaborate with a national network of 25 specialist sexual health services; research laboratories in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and PNG; the School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne; the Burnet Institute in Melbourne; and the Menzies School of Health Research.
