The WA AIDS Council receives Government funding, but cannot rely solely on this income to provide the full range of services we do.

That is why your generosity is so important.

We are fully committed to supporting people living with HIV, and to preventing further transmissions, with testing, treatment and education.

With your help, we can end HIV in Western Australia.
