For almost 30 years, the success of the ACT’s and Australia’s response to HIV has largely been a result of a collaborative partnership between our community, governments, researchers and health professionals. This year has again demonstrated the effectiveness of this partnership approach.
The 2013–14 financial year has been very productive for Meridian. We have seen particularly strong involvement from the Board, staff and volunteers and a greater participation by members in programs. We have made clear achievements, despite increases in operational and program demands. This includes developing new partnerships and maintaining existing alliances. Meridian is delighted to have developed more formal links with community sector partners, which will help us to deliver and facilitate accessible, high-quality services, education programs and campaigns.
