Aboriginal STI, HIV and Hepatitis workers

Aboriginal STI, HIV and Hepatitis C workers provide a liaison role between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and health services around STI, HIV and Hepatitis C related issues. Workers are based in both the public and community controlled health sectors within all areas of NSW. If there is not a worker listed in your area, phone the worker nearest to where you live, as they may visit your area or they may be able to provide you with useful contacts for your local area.
