Positive Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network (PATSIN)

The Positive Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network (PATSIN) is a national membership-based group for Indigenous people living with HIV (PLHIV).

Auspiced by NAPWHA, PATSIN works within Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander communities and service providers to represent the interests of Indigenous Australians. It exists to provide an outlet for exchanging experiences and knowledge about HIV, and to advocate for change at the community level. PATSIN is committed to increasing education and addressing the high-level of HIV stigma within Indigenous communities.

NAPWHA and PATSIN recognise the diversity of the lived experience of Indigenous people and undertake to provide the best possible advocacy, support and information dissemination to all Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander PLHIV, by providing culturally appropriate peer support.
