CEH joins Curtin University HIV research project
On Saturday 12 August 2017, The Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health conducted a focus group as part of an HIV research project auspice by Curtin University in Western Australia. This HIV research project is currently being conducted across Australia including Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia to explore a wide range of experiences among culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) groups. As Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health is a stakeholder and Victorian reference group on the HIV research project. The centre has been tasked with recruiting the focus group, conducting research and to collate and interpret part of HIV research data for the Victoria state.
The Curtin University HIV research project draws on evidence over the last decade that Australia has had an increase in HIV notifications among people who are born overseas, particularly among people born in sub-Saharan Africa, South East Asia and North East Asia.
The purpose of the project is to explore what may stop people from accessing health services and HIV testing and to better understand what we can do to increase testing.
This focus group will add to this discussion and help research how to better connect these communities to the health system.
