“As Head of Rheumatology and the Musculoskeletal Unit, SPHPM, I would like to thank the excellent and dedicated clinical and research teams I have had the good fortune to work with over the years. These awards are given to one person but represent the work of great teams,” she said.

Infectious Diseases Physician and head of the HIV Prevention Service at The Alfred, A/Prof Wright said she was delighted to be recognised.

"This award equally belongs to all the people living with HIV, those at risk of HIV, my mentors, peers and colleagues,” A/Prof Wright said.
