Now More Than Ever

Now more than ever is a time to believe in the elimination of HIV in Australia. Never before have we had access to science, technology and tools to achieve something that until recently looked stubbornly unattainable.

The Western Australian AIDS Council (WAAC) is a community not-for-profit organisation that has led the Western Australian community in minimising the social and personal impacts, and the transmission of HIV. Over almost 30 years, we have innovated, evolved and adapted to changes in the epidemic, and progressively expanded our focus to encompass broader sexual health and blood-borne virus issues that affect our community.

What We Do text

The WA AIDS council, established in 1985, leads the Western Australian community in the provision of a wide range of services in the prevention of HIV, and the treatment and care of people living with HIV/AIDS.
