Positive Life NSW regularly partners with research institutions and promotes research studies by other agencies or institutions in the interests of informing and guiding the development of services and resources to meet the needs of people living with HIV in NSW.

HIV FUTURES 10 HIV Futures is a research series about the health and wellbeing of people living with HIV in Australia. Each study forms part of a series of cross-sectional surveys that have been run every two to three years since 1997.  Stay tuned for 2021 updates when HIV Futures 10 will commence.

Positive Quality of Life Research
The Albion Centre invites people living with HIV who access medical HIV treatment through the Albion Centre, to participate in a short online survey about the factors which impact Quality of Life (QoL) in people living with HIV and how this might impact your engagement in medical care. Participants who complete the questionnaire will be eligible for a $25 supermarket voucher.
