The overall notification rate of new HIV diagnoses in 2017 was 4.0 per 100 000 population, representing an 11% decline in the last five years. In 2017, the notification rate was highest among men (7.1 per 100,000 population: 0.9 per 100,000 in females) particularly those aged 20-29 years and 30-39 years (13.3and 14.9 per 100,000 population respectively). These data are lower than the previous five years.
In 2017, the notification rate of new HIV diagnoses in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population was 1.6 times higher than the Australian-born non-Indigenous population, 4.6 and 2.8 per 100,000 population respectively (table 1). While the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population has consistently had higher notification rates than the Australian-born non-Indigenous population over the previous 5 years, the notification rate has decreased* in both population groups.

Data has been drawn from a national indicator or dataset and is an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. We will work to develop an Australian dataset that meets the globally agreed methodology for this UN SDG Indicator.
Number of new HIV infections per 1,000 uninfected population, by sex, age and key populations
Data is not available by 1,000 population rate however, it is available for 100,000 population.
