Making your materials work: a quick guide to developing culturally appropriate and effective hiv resource content
Making your Materials Work: A Quick Guide to Developing Culturally Appropriate and Effective HIV Resource Content (the Guide) is for those working with migrants and people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds in Australia to prevent and manage human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Information was compiled through a literature review and the results of a health literacy INDEX evaluation of available HIV resources in Australia.

This recommendation is consistent with national and jurisdictional strategies for HIV
