Abstract: In contrast to many countries, Australia quickly developed a range of pragmatic and innovative measures to prevent the spread of HIV. Australian state and federal governments gave significant funding to gay and prostitute-based organizations to devise and deliver AIDS prevention programs and educational materials, and incorporated representatives of the most affected communities into advisory bodies. Adopting a ‘harm reduction’ approach, Australian governments and health authorities also developed a series of explicit education campaigns aimed at the general public and school children, and implemented needle and syringe exchange programs that became some of the most extensive and effective in the world.
