We work with individuals, families and community groups affected by or at risk of HIV, Hepatitis B and/or C, or by sexually transmissible infections (STIs).
This can include migrants, refugees, sex workers and international students of all ages and genders.

We provide free support services, counselling, information sessions, and resources to:
- help people understand the infection and what it does to the body.
- increase understanding about how to know if they have the virus/disease, and what treatments are available.
- assist people to do the appropriate testing/check-up, maintain follow up and get appropriate treatment.
- teach people how to reduce the risk of contracting the infection, and learn how to prevent transmission of those infections.
- assist people to respond to unfair treatment or discrimination because of their situation.
- help build personal confidence and not let shame factors affect their life.
- help people live healthy lives.
- provide support services people may need.
