How you can help

Make a donation or volunteer for charities or community organisations involved in HIV/AIDS work in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.


The Australasian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) needs donations to support its program in Asia and the Pacific.

Bobby Goldsmith Foundation (BGF) This NSW community charity provides direct financial assistance, financial counselling, supported housing and employment support to people living with HIV/AIDS.

AIDS Trust of Australia This national AIDS Charity raises awareness and distributes grants for care, support, education and research. The AIDS Trust organises the Annual Food and Wine Fair fundraiser in Sydney.

Local HIV community organisations may also appreciate donations - look for an organisation near you.

A number of Australian charities do international HIV projects, including:

Australian Red Cross

Save the children




AFAO does not usually require volunteers, however there are many other opportunities to do voluntary work in Australia and abroad. See our Volunteering page for more info.
