NAPWHA is developing an advocacy agenda for HIV and ageing in recognition of the fact that more than 50% of the people with HIV in Australia will soon be over the age of 50.
- The Government is developing an LGBTI Action Plan as part of a new Aged Care Diversity Framework. NAPWHA acknowledges that a number of people living with HIV are also part of the LGBTI communities and is inviting people to contribute to the survey. We are keen to ensure the voices of older people living with HIV are heard in this consultation.
- This survey will inform the Government about the particular needs of LGBTI communities in Australia, including those with HIV. The Aged Care Sector Committee Diversity Sub-Group will also develop action plans for: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; and people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD backgrounds).
- The LGBTI Health Alliance is holding in-person consultations across Australia and conducting an online survey to ensure your experiences and wisdom are included.
