Infectious Diseases Surveillance

In Australia, HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) notifications have been on the rise for the past decade. We conduct surveillance for HIV and STIs on behalf of the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments.

Rigorous evaluations of projects and programs are aimed at better understanding the transmission and prevention of communicable diseases, including HIV and STIs and the health and wellbeing of affected populations.

Objectives:

  • Managing, developing and refining innovative surveillance systems for the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments to better understand the drivers of HIV and other STI transmission
  • Undertake evaluation projects to examine the effectiveness of policy and initiatives aimed at reducing the transmission and impact of communicable diseases, including blood borne viruses and STI
  • Integrating findings from our surveillance, epidemiology and research to inform policy and practice to prevent the transmission of diseases such as HIV and other STI transmission.
