​22 January 2017:  The AMA has released a very welcome position statement on Blood Borne Viruses (BBVs) on 9 January 2017.  Importantly it endorses NSP in prisons, the role of primary care in management of BBV, legal protection for sex workers, a recognition of key affected populations and HTLV-1.  ASHM hosted a meeting at the recent 2016 Australasian HIV and AIDS Conference on HTLV-1 with the view to supporting Aboriginal communities, clinician and researchers in central Australia to expand their work in this area. ASHM have written to the AMA, endorsing their statement and offering to work with them to progress the calls.
