HIV Emergency Fund & Phyllis Hill Bequest Fund

WAAC wishes to advise that due to increased demand both the HIV Emergency Relief fund and the Phyllis Hill Bequest Fund’s are no longer available. All funds allocated to these have been used to provide support and assistance.

We would like to acknowledge and thank LotteryWest and MAC Cosmetics for their contribution in allocating funding for the HIV Emergency Relief Fund to date.

The Phyllis Hill Bequest was received in September 2006 from the estate of Phyllis Hill. Funds from this bequest met charitable purposes and were used to fund the advancement of health, education and/or the alleviation of poverty for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) or otherwise vulnerable to being infected with HIV.

We would like to thank family members of Phyllis Hill and acknowledge the great benefit this bequest has brought to many community members

WAAC will be working towards securing additional funding next financial year for the HIV Emergency Relief Fund through LotteryWest.

In the course of securing any new funding, WAAC will ensure all future applications for funding once approved are acquitted in a sustainable way. This will enable funds to be maximised throughout the course of the year. 

The Team @ WAAC



Our Mission

To minimise the impact and further transmission of HIV, other blood borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections. To reduce social, legal and policy barriers which prevent access to health information and effective support and prevention services.

WA AIDS Council would like to acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of this country throughout Australia, and their strength, resilience and connection to land and community. In particular, the WA AIDS Council would like to acknowledge the Wadjuk people of the Noongar Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in which our office is located.
