HELP US BE HERE FOR HIV PREVENTION
We’re here to help end HIV transmission among gay and homosexually active men by helping them test often, treat early and stay safe. We do this by promoting education campaigns, operating HIV and STI testing facilities, running gay health workshops, providing a range of support services and distributing hundreds of thousands of free condoms every year throughout NSW.
Our HIV prevention programs and services are getting results, especially our a[TEST] rapid HIV testing facilities which have proven very popular with gay men. However if we’re to realise our goal of eliminating HIV by the end of the decade, we need to get a lot more gay men to test frequently, start treatment early and continue safe sex practices. With over 250,000 gay men in NSW, this will take a lot more resources than we currently have.
HELP US BE HERE FOR HIV SUPPORT
We want to help people with HIV live with confidence, independence and the best possible health. Over 12,000 people in NSW live with HIV and many rely on the information and services we provide, especially those who are newly diagnosed with the virus as well as those who require in home care. Some of these services, such as our meal services and community development activities for people living with HIV, don’t attract any government funding and rely on donations from the community.
