Informed by our experience with the community-led response to HIV/AIDS, we now offer a growing range of health services and programs aimed at various LGBTI communities.
VAC is Australia’s oldest LGBTI health organisation and Victoria’s largest, having been formed by the community in 1983 in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. VAC adheres to a social model of health aligned with the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion which determines that all people have the right to increase control over and improve their health.
Through a range of projects, VAC delivers community-led and culturally appropriate services that improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTI people living throughout Victoria and South Australia. Our organisation is built on a historical foundation of peer-to-peer and professional expertise in services and programs delivered by staff and volunteers and in partnership with other organisations.
