The HIV/AIDS Legal Centre (HALC) is a not-for-profit, specialist community legal centre: the only one of its kind in Australia. We tackle the severe stigma and discrimination associated with HIV by providing specialist services to vulnerable people living with HIV in Australia.
We need your help to continue our work. Your donations will go directly to providing services – wages for front line lawyers and paralegals, for court application and subpoena fees, to meet the basic costs of our amazing volunteers!
