Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HIV Awareness Week

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HIV Awareness Week (ATSIHAW) runs each year to raise HIV awareness, promote prevention and encourage community involvement in reducing rates of HIV in our communities.

The theme of ATSIHAW is “U and Me Can Stop HIV”

ATSIHAW is held each year to coincide with World AIDS Day on December 1 and will run from November 29 – December 6 in 2021 with planned events aimed at promoting awareness of HIV in local community based organisations.

You can get involved in any of the following ways:

- Share ATSIHAW dates with your networks, family and friends.

ATSIHAW provide up to date resources on HIV for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, communities and health services across Australia.

Further, ATSIHAW also supports health professionals and educatiors, with information on lastest data and HIV programs among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, key research projects and links to useful online resources.
