HIV/AIDS Legal Centre

HALC’s vision is to see an end to the HIV/AIDS crisis and does so by providing high quality legal services whilst displaying an appreciation of, and sensitivity to, the special needs of people with an HIV related legal matter; undertaking community legal education; and engaging in law reform activities in areas relating to HIV/AIDS.

 To deal with these particular issues, we adopted a different service delivery model to most other community legal centres. Rather than a triage service that provides initial advice and referral, we focus on ongoing casework and routinely run longer and more complex matters in order to achieve genuine, systemic change.
