Newly positive: Experiences of HIV diagnosis in the contemporary era

Have you been diagnosed with HIV in the past 12 months? Researchers at Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) are seeking participants for a new study on current experiences of HIV diagnosis and living with HIV. Your personal story will help us understand the experience of being diagnosed with HIV today, and help influence the design of HIV care and support services.

If you agree to take part in the study, they will arrange a time to do an in-depth interview. The interview will take 60–90 minutes. Interviews will be conducted via telephone or web-based video conferencing platform (such as Zoom). Interviews can be conducted in Mandarin, Spanish, Vietnamese and Tagalog. You will be compensated for your time with a $100 gift card.

You can take part if you:

  • Have been diagnosed with HIV in the past 12 months
  • Are living in Australia (you don’t need to be a permanent resident)
  • Are aged 18 years or over
