The primary purpose of the HIV/STI Test Facilitator is to provide HIV/STI testing and education to people who believe they may have been at risk of contracting HIV. This will require the delivery of time limited interventions that involve conducting appropriate test procedures, discussion of sexual health strategies and the delivery of results. A significant requirement of this position is therefore the provision of immediate support to newly diagnosed clients and providing the necessary assistance to link the client into HIV care and treatment. Due to the one-on-one nature of client interactions, HIV/STI Test Facilitators are expected to maintain a high-level knowledge of all aspects of HIV prevention and the HIV care continuum.
Outreach work will also be required across South East Queensland, including the Gold Coast and Metro Brisbane locations such as Sex on Premises Venues; maintaining a safe and confidential environment while working in a sexualised environment will be expected.
The goal of the RAPID program is to increase the testing frequency of people at risk of acquiring HIV in order to reduce the proportion of PLHIV who are unaware of their status. RAPID program staff will work collaboratively to achieve this goal by using a non-invasive model of testing where clients are invited to ask questions about HIV or the window period, but they do not need to provide details about their sexual or injecting history.
A full position description is available below.
