HIV/AIDS - Australian organisations and programs

Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS)

This centre was established in October 1992 as the 'Centre for the Study of Sexually Transmissible Diseases' within the Faculty of Health Sciences at La Trobe University. The Centre, which is funded by the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation, is a collaborating centre to the National Centre in HIV Social Research (see below) and is affiliated with the University of Melbourne. This ARCSHS site provides resources about hepatitis C and other blood-borne viruses (BBVs) for teachers to use with students in years 9 and 10, and possibly with students in years 11 and 12. The site also provides links for teachers to find more detailed information about hepatitis C, and that students can use for project work.
