HIV Policy Innovation

Our aim is to highlight the best policy approaches to HIV from a community perspective.
Preference will be given to policy which has the potential to impact most beneficially to people with HIV and their prevention efforts. Some Policy recommendations will also be generated from the HIV Think Tanks conducted by Positive Advocate. Policy topics are listed below

Political Leadership
The UN Political Declaration (endorsed by all UN member States) and its policy implications for the Australian HIV response.
