|About||We're here for HIV prevention, HIV support and LGBTI health.|
Our mission is to enhance the health and wellbeing of our communities by:
- Ending HIV transmission among men who have sex with men(MSM)
- Promoting the lifelong health of LGBTI people and people with HIV
We’re a New South Wales based health promotion organisation specialising in HIV prevention, HIV support and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) health.
Established in 1985 as the AIDS Council of NSW, we’re here to end HIV transmission among gay and homosexually active men, and promote the lifelong health of LGBTI people and people with HIV.
Our head office is in Sydney, we have offices in key regional locations and we provide services throughout NSW.
We’re primarily funded by the NSW Government through the NSW Ministry of Health and our work forms an integral part of the NSW Government’s HIV Strategy.
We’re Here For HIV Prevention
Advances in HIV testing and treatments mean we can end HIV transmission in NSW by 2020, but only if gay men test more, treat early and stay safe. We’re here to help them do this by promoting education campaigns, running gay health workshops, providing a range of support services and distributing hundreds of thousands of free condoms every year throughout NSW.
We’re Here For HIV Support
Over 12,000 people in NSW live with HIV. We’re here to help people with HIV take control of their health, as well as the health of their partners, by providing up-to-date information as well as a range of programs and services.
We’re Here For LGBTI Health
Over 500,000 LGBTI people live in NSW and tens of thousands more visit every year. We’re here to help LGBTI people take control of their health and wellbeing so they can look after themselves as well as their partners, family and friends. We provide the latest information on health issues affecting LGBTI people, and we offer a range of services delivered by caring people who genuinely understand the health issues affecting LGBTI people. Our services cover:
Alcohol & Drugs
