AIDS Council of New South Wales (ACON)



The AIDS Council of New South Wales (ACON) began in 1985 as the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. ACON is a community-based organisation that seeks to promote the health and wellbeing of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community. ACON is also involved in policy development and program delivery.

Three specific goals guide the work of ACON and they include: ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic at a local and international level; a healthy, resilient and inclusive gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community; and a society that respects and promotes human rights as the foundation for good health.

The population groups ACON work to serve include: the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender community; people with HIV; people who use drugs; sex workers; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
