What is VHHITAL?
VHHITAL is the Victorian HIV and Hepatitis Integrated Training And Learning (VHHITAL) program.
The program delivers comprehensive education and training for GPs for the diagnosis, treatment and management of HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and sexually transmitted infections (STI). It includes the provision of training and certification for practitioners who prescribe highly specialised drugs administered under Section 100 (S100) of the National Health Act 1953.
The program aims to:
- Improve general practice workforce capacity to screen, treat and manage HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and STIs.
- Improve alignment of general practitioners, with priority populations and areas of high prevalence for HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and STIs.
- Improve access to community testing and prescribing for HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and STIs.
- Improve networking opportunities for prescribers.
