Dates of existence

1983 -


The first meeting of the ACT AIDS Action Committee was held in 1983. This group then established itself as the AIDS Action Council of the ACT in March 1985 and incorporated in 1986. The Council worked closely with affected communities with specific projects established for gay men, injecting drug users, sex workers and people with haemophilia. Support, information and counselling were provided to people with HIV/AIDS, their partners and families, and more general community awareness and advocacy work was undertaken. When other support services were founded in the Australian Capital Territory for intravenous drug users, sex workers and people with haemophilia, the Council focused its prevention services towards gay and bisexual men and broadened its education and health promotion progams to people with HIV/AIDS.
