The Ministerial Advisory Committee on Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections is the key advisory body to the Australian Government on the national response to blood-borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections (including HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis, and chlamydia).
The primary role of the Committee is to advise the Government on a national framework for the treatment and prevention of blood-borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections. The Committee will also be involved in the implementation of the framework and in monitoring its effectiveness. An action plan will also be developed by the Committee specific to the prevention of blood-borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This Committee replaces the previous Ministerial Advisory Committee on AIDS/HIV, Sexual Health, and Hepatitis (MACASHH).
