New call for action on HIV
A new call for action on HIV has been made at the 24th Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference held in Melbourne in October 2012.
The Melbourne Declaration seeks to galvanise Australia’s HIV testing, prevention and treatment responses to help it meet commitments made under the United Nations 2011 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS.
The latest declaration, made in October, calls for increased access to HIV testing, treatment and pre-exposure prophylaxes, as well as a strengthened partnership response and enabling environment.
