These national testing policies are targeted towards health professionals ordering HIV, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B related tests, and receiving and interpreting results. They set out the framework for providing quality testing and removing real and perceived barriers to testing. The web based provision of the policies allow for regular revision and access to related resources (e.g. related policies, operational guidelines, evidence of best practice) with a download and print function. Expert Reference Committees conduct regular reviews of the National Testing Policies in response to the changing prevention, diagnostic and treatment knowledge base. ASHM has been contracted by the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) to coordinate these reviews, the development of the first National HBV Testing Policy and the maintenance of this testing portal. These are living policies. Your feedback on the information contained in this website is vital. Click on the orange tab on the right hand side of this page to provide feedback.
