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).
