"Australia can offer you one of the best holidays or business trips you've ever experienced. Beautiful beaches, great restaurants, breathtaking scenery... maybe even romance. Unfortunately, like most other countries in the world, Australia also has the AIDS virus (HIV). HIV can be passed on during vaginal and anal sex without a condom and through oral sex (although the risk is much lower). HIV can also be passed on by sharing needles and syringes with someone who has the virus. If you have sex, protect yourself and your partner against HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases by always using a condom together with a water-based lubricant. If you inject, don't share needles and syringes. Clean ones are available from pharmacies throughout Australia. Condoms are also available from pharmacies, supermarkets and condom vending machines. Whether you are travelling for business of pleasure, pack condoms and Travel Safe. Commonwealth Department of Health, Housing and Community Services."
