Clinical guidelines

By law, sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and blood borne viruses (BBVs) of public health significance must be notified to Queensland Health. The clinical guidelines specify which conditions are notifiable in Queensland.

This guideline provides health professionals with relevant insights into Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural and historical influences. It is to help guide practice in order to deliver culturally competent sexual healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adolescents.

This package has been produced by the HIV & HCV Education Projects, School of Medicine, University of Queensland, in collaboration with Hepatitis Queensland, with funding provided by Queensland Health. It has been approved by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
