The Seventh National HIV Strategy 2014–2017 sets the direction for Australia to reverse the increasing trend of new HIV diagnoses and works towards the virtual elimination of HIV transmission by 2020. The goals of the Seventh National HIV Strategy 2014–2017 (the Strategy) are to: work towards achieving the virtual elimination of HIV transmission in Australia by 2020; reduce the morbidity and mortality caused by HIV; minimise the personal and social impact of HIV. The Strategy has six objectives which, in combination, support achievement of its goals. The objectives are to: 1. reduce the incidence of HIV. 2. reduce the risk behaviours associated with the transmission of HIV. 3. decrease the number of people with undiagnosed HIV infection. 4. increase the proportion of people living with HIV on treatments with undetectable viral load. 5. improve quality of life of people living with HIV. 6. eliminate the negative impact of stigma, discrimination, and legal and human rights issues on people’s health.
