Every person diagnosed with HIV has the right to and should be offered 5 Key Support Services:

  1. Effective clinical management, including access to treatment
  2. Psychosocial support
  3. Counselling about prevention of transmission of HIV to others, including the role of treatment in reducing the risk of transmission
  4. Support to ensure that all at risk partners are identified and tested for HIV
  5. Linkage to relevant specialist, community and peer support services

The NSW HIV Support Program ensures that expert advice, support and resources needed by doctors to deliver the 5 Key Support Services are available at the time of making an HIV diagnosis.

These short videos have been developed through sector-wide consultation and are part of a resource package for health professionals and people living with HIV across NSW.
