RISE stands for ‘Recent Diagnosis and the Impact of Support on Experiences of HIV’. RISE is exploring people’s experiences of being diagnosed with HIV and the changes in their lives following their diagnosis.
What's involved? Simply complete an online survey twice a year. The survey includes detailed questions about your experience of being diagnosed with HIV, and your life since then. In the first survey we will also ask you some questions about your life in the period just before you were diagnosed. The survey will take about 35–45 minutes to complete. (The follow-up surveys will be shorter.)
THank you for your continued support of the AIDS Action Council. We would like to wish you and yours a festive holiday season and a Happy New Year!
The Council will be closed from 21 December 2018 – 7 January 2018. If you need support during this time, please contact:

As 2018 draws to an end and the festive season here upon us, it is a great time to share the love and donate to the Trevor Daley Fund (TDF).
TDF supports people living with HIV. This year we have assisted new and existing clients to support their journey to live well with HIV. We have provided assistance with basic living needs such as accommodation, medical expenses and food. And with growing pressure for assistance, we need your help.
To all Members of the AIDS Action Council of the ACT Incorporated:
NOTICE is hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the
AIDS Action Council of the ACT Incorporated
To be held on Wednesday 28 November 2018 from 5:30 pm at:
Federation Room, Havelock House85 Northbourne Avenue, Turner ACT 2602
As organisations, leaders and allies of diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities, we stand united in our call on all Australian governments to ensure that every person can go to school, work or access services free from discrimination.
Australians voted for fairness and equality last year, not to entrench discrimination against LGBTI people and their families.
The Silver Rainbow LGBTI Aged Care Awareness Training Project is managed by the National LGBTI Heath Alliance and is being delivered collaboratively with project partners across every state and territory in Australia. It is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health until June 2020.
