HIV, hepatitis and STIs in Australia


The Kirby Institute collates national data for HIV, viral hepatitis, and sexually transmissible infections in Australia from many sources. These data are used as a reference for organisations and individuals interested in the occurrence and epidemiology of these infectious diseases in Australia.

In this website, you will find a breakdown of the data by condition, along with the Australian HIV Public Access Dataset. The underlying data are also available as downloadable tables.

You will also find the latest data for HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, for use by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services, communities and stakeholders, among others.

Unless specifically stated otherwise, all data on this site are to the end of 2019. All data presented are provisional and subject to future revision.

This data site could not have been prepared without the collaboration of a large number of organisations throughout Australia. The ongoing substantial contribution to national surveillance for HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections by the organisations listed in the Acknowledgements, is gratefully acknowledged.


NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are delays in the availability of data to 2020. We apologise for the delay in providing these data. Please keep an eye on Kirby Institute social media and our website for updates.
