HIV in Australia 2022 reflects some of the many impacts of COVID-19, including disruptions to testing and prevention.

  • HIV notifications have declined by 37% in Australia since 2016.
  • COVID-19 disruptions – including less HIV testing – have contributed to the dramatic drop in HIV notifications in 2020.
