The Victorian HIV passive surveillance system and the VPCNSS are funded by the Victorian Government Department of Health. The authors acknowledge the work of the public health officers who follow up and collect enhanced surveillance data for HIV cases notified in Victoria. The collection of data for the VPCNSS is made possible by the ongoing participation and contribution of staff at the primary care clinics who facilitate survey completion among patients, and the laboratories that undertake pathology services for these clinics.

AP receives funding from the Australian government through an NHMRC Public Health Postgraduate Scholarship and the Sidney Myer Health Scholarship.
