New multilingual HIV resource: 7 good reasons to test for HIV now

Positive Life / NSW Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service (MHAHS) / Pozhet, June 2018

The new multilingual resource was developed by Positive Life NSW, Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service (MHAHS) and Pozhet, and funded by NSW Health.  

“The campaign is asking people at risk to get tested for  HIV because roughly one in ten people living with HIV don’t know they have the virus,” said Positive Life NSW CEO, Craig Cooper.

“We are pleased to partner with the Positive Life NSW and Pozhet who are reaching out to people from culturally diverse backgrounds,” said Barbara Luisi, manager of the MHAHS. “HIV affects people of all genders, cultures, languages and nationalities.”

The digital resource covers seven of the key reasons why people should get tested for HIV in plain everyday language and was  designed to engage people with low literacy skills who may be also from diverse cultural backgrounds.

It  has been developed in English, Arabic, Chinese, Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese.
