HIV Support

The Council provides a variety of services to people impacted by HIV and AIDS. Services offered include:

Case Management

We provide case management for people living with HIV. We can support you through a variety of challenges that life presents including accessing healthcare services, housing and government services. We provide advocacy services and can help you respond to any instances of unfair treatment.

Peer Support

Peer support activities include:

  • Social functions
  • Information sessions

Peer support provides you with an opportunity to meet, talk to and learn from other people living with HIV. We believe that social inclusion is vital for good physical and mental health and wellbeing. The Council continues to develop a range of programs to support our community.

HIV DIETITIAN CLINIC

Nutrition can play a major role in managing HIV. Your diet can impact the effectiveness of your HIV medications as well as how you feel and your overall health. The Council holds regular Dietitian Clinics for people living with HIV. Each clinic is staffed by an HIV specialist.

Spaces are strictly limited, and you will need to provide information about your treatments at your consultation.
