The New South Wales Sexually Transmissible Infections Units (NSW STIPU) work is guided by the New South Wales Sexually Transmissible Infections and HIV Strategies. These strategies aim to reduce HIV and STIs and associated morbidity and mortality in NSW by working with priority populations, the public and private health system to build capacity for prevention, treatment and management of HIV and STIs.
STIPU was established by NSW Health to assist coordination and where appropriate, to directly implement some state-wide services. Many aspects of the strategies require partnerships of agencies across the health and community sector and across health service boundaries.
