HIV Futures: Research Impact and the Australian HIV Response Report uri icon


  • HIV Futures is a study of the wellbeing and life-experiences of people living with HIV (PLHIV) in Australia. The study has been running since 1997, having been initiated by community advocates who saw the need for research about how PLHIV were coping socially, emotionally and financially following the introduction of highly active combination antiretroviral therapy (ART) in 1996. HIV Futures involves periodic, cross-sectional surveys of PLHIV, exploring health, wellbeing, antiretroviral treatment use, sex and relationships. There have now been eight iterations of HIV Futures (1997-2016).
