HIV Highest in Queensland Since 1984

Data released this morning shows that 2009 had the highest number of people with HIV in Queensland since 1984.

The rate of notifications also increased, although this has been put down to an aggressive campaign by the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities which encouraged gay men to get tested.

Queensland’s chief Health Officer has reminded the public that the best way to prevent HIV is to always practice safe sex and use preventative measures.
