About the organisation
About the role
Australian Federation of AIDS Organisation is the national federation for the HIV community response in Australia. AFAO works to end HIV transmission and reduce its impact on communities in Australia, Asia and the Pacific.
The member organisations represent the diverse communities most affected by HIV – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intesex communities, sex workers, people who inject drugs, people with HIV and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
AFAO’s close connection with communities provides rapid intelligence on changes in Australia’s HIV epidemic, allowing the Federation to respond quickly and to act as a trusted communication channel to government, research and clinical partners.
