Annual Reports

Annual Report (2022)

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our communities remain at the heart of our work at Meridian. While Canberra was relatively sheltered from COVID-19 early on, we were hit hard by the pandemic in the first half of this financial year. In response, we rallied to support our communities, working hard to ensure they had access to appropriate health information and resources, COVID-19 vaccinations, and mental health support. We also made sure that our communities could meet their ongoing healthcare needs, including having access to HIV testing facilities, HIV medication, and harm-reduction resources and support.

Annual Report (2021)

It has been another busy year as we continue to work at the individual, community, organisational, and public policy levels to achieve positive outcomes for our communities.

We kicked off last financial year by refreshing our strategic plan to ensure we remain at the forefront of achieving positive outcomes for our communities. Our new plan sets out an ambitious program of activities that aim to contribute to eliminating HIV and improving sexual health, improving access to quality services for people living with HIV, creating a safe community, and
improving access to inclusive and knowledgeable health and wellbeing services for people who require support around gender identity and sexuality. The plan also sets an agenda for investing in the organisation to ensure sustainability and growth. The 2021-2024 Strategic Plan is available on our website.

Annual Report (2020)

This year’s annual report highlights a significant evolution in our identity as an organisation. At the annual general meeting in November 2019, our members voted to change our name. After almost four decades, we have re-launched under a new name: Meridian.

Annual Report (2019)

It is a distinct privilege to provide our members with this report on behalf of the Council’s Board and staff. It clearly demonstrates our record of service delivery to the community, our strong financial position, and the effective governance that guides our day-to-day operations in HIV prevention and improving the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ communities.

Annual Report (2018)

It is an exciting and challenging time for Meridian and the entire community sector. A world leader in our responses to Blood Borne Viruses (BBV) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI), Australia has some of the lowest HIV transmission rates in the world. While ground-breaking technological advances have effectively changed how we respond to these issues, significant challenges remain. Meridian is well placed to tackle these challenges head on, improving and expanding its provision of support services and resources for our HIV and LGBTIQ communities.

Annual Report (2016)

This year has been an exciting year for Meridian. After a period of change and renewal last year, this year saw Meridian undertake a major strategic planning process. This has resulted in a new Strategic Plan that will see the direction of Meridian from 2016 to 2020.

Annual Report (2015)

This year has been one of new beginnings with a move to new premises and returning to a financially stable position. This has strengthened the focus on the Council’s ability to develop and grow  sustainably into the future. The move from Westlund House to Havelock House has provided a unique opportunity to reflect on our history, and protect the fascinating collection of local and national material which has been amassed over the Council’s last 30 years.

Annual Report (2014)

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.

This year has been a big journey for the Meridian. We’ve grown in capability and capacity. We’ve reinforced strong foundations. They have been challenging but exciting times and it has been a privilege and honour to be part of that journey.

Annual Report (2012)

We now have reasonable optimism that the end of HIV in Australia is possible in the medium term and that AIDS can be completely eliminated. Our hope comes from a raft of new evidence that supports treatment as prevention, opportunities afforded by new HIV testing technology and the huge improvements in the lives of most of those that have access to the latest medications. Whilst these advances are real, their potential will not be realised without governments political will, community support and a renewed sense of partnership.

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our 2011 Annual Report. This time last year, I was proud to announce the implementation of our new three-year Strategic Plan. One of the most important commitments we make in our plan is to ensure that we conduct an annual review of our performance against it, that we invite external stakeholders to participate in the review and that we are transparent and accountable for our performance

Annual Report (2010)

Welcome to the Annual Report of Meridian activities for 2009 – 2010. It has been some years since we have reported on such an active year; one where so much has been accomplished.
