About

The AIDS Council of South Australia (ACSA) aims to improve the health and wellbeing of gay and other homosexually active men, people who inject drugs, sex workers and people living with HIV/AIDS in order to contribute to the overall wellbeing of the community. Our key clients are those at risk, affected by, or living with HIV/AIDS.

People often think that our services are simply about safe sex campaigns and distributing condoms, but effective health promotion for the community requires far more – advocacy, education programs, personal development courses, skills building courses, information, care and support services, and referrals.

ACSA is here for the community and our services are closely informed by consultation with the communities we serve. We do this in a number of ways: surveys, committee representation, board membership, general membership, via our volunteers and through evaluation of various campaigns and events throughout the year.

ACSA board members come from all walks of life, representing our various client groups, staff and volunteers.

ACSA coordinates a number of special events in South Australia including AIDS Awareness Week, the Candlelight Vigil and the Red Ribbon Appeal.

ACSA always welcomes support from the public, even if you are not a member of one of the communities closely affected by HIV/AIDS.
