AIDS Council of South Australia

The AIDS Council of South Australia (ACSA) was established in 1984 to provide clinical solutions at the height of the AIDS epidemic. The Council oversaw programs including the Gay Men’s Health Network and the South Australian Sex Industry Network. The Council aimed to prevent the transmission of HIV, support those who became HIV positive with health programs and to lead public policy and research. ACSA marshalled many community groups to make a significant impact on the understanding of HIV and AIDS in South Australia. ACSA closed in 2013 after becoming insolvent.
