HIV Outreach Team NSW Health discussing Psychosocial support for PLHIV for the NSW HIV Support Program
The HIV Outreach Team in SESLHD operates across thirteen local government areas including: Botany, Hurstville, Kogarah, Randwick, Rockdale, Sutherland, City of Sydney (part of), Waverley, Woollahra, Kiama, Shellharbour, Shoalhaven, and Wollongong.
Although the HIV Outreach Team is based in Darlinghurst all our work is performed in an outreach capacity in clients homes, correctional centres, homeless agencies or as negotiated by the client.
People living with HIV (PLHIV) can experience a range of acute or chronic health problems or issues and at times may need to coordinate a number of different services. Challenges encountered may include medication, nutrition, housing, mental health, alcohol and drug use and finances.
The HIV Outreach Team can assist with a self-management approach towards these issues and help to navigate the health and social services system. They also provide advocacy and support around planning your care.
The team works in partnership with other service providers involved in your care, such as general practitioners, Hospital and Community Health services, non-government organisations (NGOs) such as ACON and Bobby Goldsmith Foundation and other community agencies. The team aims to improve the quality of your care using an integrated and coordinated approach.
