HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that attacks and weakens the immune system. The virus can be transmitted through body fluids such as blood, semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk and anal mucous.  

Meridian (then the ACT AIDS Action Committee) was established in 1983 as a response to the HIV and AIDS epidemic in the ACT. Today, Meridian continues to lead the ACT community response by providing services such as prevention, education, treatment and support for people living with and impacted by HIV (PLHIV).

Meridian acknowledges Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past and present.

Meridian is proud to work with our sponsors and partner organisations.

By developing a Reconciliation Action Plan, we hope to clearly identify actions and realistic targets detailing steps and priorities that advise on the rights, health and dignity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are impacted by HIV or at risk of HIV.

Meridian is proudly QIC Accredited.
