Have you heard about ‘genomic sequencing’ or ‘molecular analysis’ used to ‘track and trace’ COVID-19?

What are your views on using this with HIV, syphilis and/or gonorrhoea?

Researchers from the University of Melbourne in partnership with the Doherty Institute and the Victorian Department of Health invite you to join a research study: Exploring community and expert perceptions of the acceptability of HIV/STI molecular analysis for prevention and control in Victoria.

The researchers are seeking people in Victoria over the age of 18 who have had a diagnosis of HIV, syphilis or gonorrhoea – or professionals who work with them – to participate in an interview or group discussion about the use of molecular analysis in public health.

For full details visit and enter the following code: XH94WCMW4

2 flyers to promote the study are available: a general call for participants (.pdf) and a flyer focusing on syphilis and gonorrhoea (.pdf), which may be more suitable for clinical spaces.
