Join us online this World AIDS Day - Wednesday the 1st of December. Join us and show your support for people living with HIV and commemorate those who have lost their lives to HIV/AIDS. Due to COVID-19 uncertainty within the ACT, for the safety of our community we will be holding an online only event in the form of a video stream. We'll be hearing an opening address from our new President, reflections from Dr Clara Tuck Meng Soo and Dr Sarah Martin, music from the Canberra Qwire, a digital tour of the AIDS Garden of Reflection at the National Arboretum in Canberra with John McKay and Richard Allen and much more.

The video will be accessible after 11am, December 1st on this webpage and on our social media channels.


If you have any questions please contact us at [email protected] or phone 6257 2855


World AIDS Day is a day to unite and encourage our communities to talk about HIV/AIDS; and to remind and educate us that the HIV epidemic is still a major health issue. Together, we show our support for people living with and affected by HIV and remember those we have lost to AIDS-defining illness.

On the 1st of December each year we celebrate the progress that we have made in response to HIV. The research, care, treatment and prevention currently in place give us hope for the future, we are heading in the right direction. However, now more than ever, we must ensure that no one is left behind.
