Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (QAHC)

 

Description

Formally known as the Queensland AIDS Council, the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (QAHC) seeks to promote the health and wellbeing of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people. All work undertaken by QAHC is governed by the following principles: develop personal skills and knowledge; strengthen community actions; create supportive environments; reorient health services; and build healthy public policy.

Among other services, the QAHC is involved in running the following three programs: HIV and hepatitis C prevention and sexual health promotion for gay and other men who have sex with men; a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender health systems project; and the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander HIV/AIDS program. This Indigenous health program aims to improve the sexual health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander gay men and sistergirls.
