ACON is a fiercely proud community organisation, that for their entire history, the work of ACON has been designed by and for our communities.

Established in 1985, ACON’s early years were defined by community coming together to respond to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in NSW, and they remain committed to ending HIV for everyone in our communities. ACON does this by delivering campaigns and programs to eliminate new HIV transmissions. Supporting people living with HIV to live healthy and connected lives remains core to our work.

As they have grown, ACON has been proud to work with a diverse range of people to ensure their voice and health needs are represented in the work they do.

ACON’s Purpose: We create opportunities for people in our communities to live their healthiest lives

ACON’s Vision: We strive to be a global leader in community health, inclusion and HIV responses for people of diverse sexualities and genders

ACON’s head office is in Sydney, with offices in regional centres across New South Wales, providing our services and programs locally, state-wide and nationally.

Their primary funder is the NSW Government through the NSW Ministry of Health.
