Australia’s response to HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) is facing the largest and most significant developments in over 20 years.

These changes include unprecedented developments in prevention and treatment technologies, including major policy and practice shifts to prioritise the use of treatment as prevention in HIV and HCV.

These changes will compel new relationships and adaptations by community, peer, policy, health and research organisations over the next three to five years.

The Networks in Flux is a prospective, mixed method study to analyse the network of organisations responding to HIV and HCV in Victoria. Part of the benefit of using network analysis is that the collation of multiple responses gives a broader understanding of the sector relationships beyond the perspective of any one organisation. Being able to see these structures can help guide the sector in evolving the network.

The report of the baseline from this study is being generated and will soon be available here.
