SBS Radio interviews CEH manager to discuss HIV education in the Multicultural Community

Alison Coelho, Co-manager for the CEH, was interviewed on SBS Radio’s Hmong program last Friday.

It was a good chance for Alison to outline some of the CEH thoughts on a few issues. She spoke about how the main obstacle that stops people testing, and getting treatment for HIV is stigma. It is not only stigma within communities but also the stigma they encountered when accessing health services

She also discussed the sex industry and areas in that industry that, when criminalised, pushes health issues underground. CEH believes that accessing HIV testing and treatment is a human rights issue and that as everyone is protected under the law that everyone is entitled to care and to be respected when accessing health services.
