National AIDS Archive Collection
The National AIDS Archive Collection documents the history of AIDS education and prevention and related concerns in all Australian states, territories and nationally. It contains material from a wide range of government agencies, community-based organisations and individuals. It includes significant holdings of printed material, audio-visual material and ephemera.
As well as records of broad-ranging interest, the National AIDS Archive Collection contains records that are specifically oriented towards particular communities and concerns. Some of the targeted communities include the gay community, church groups, sex industry workers, people from non-English speaking backgrounds, indigenous Australians, intravenous drug users, and people living with HIV/AIDS. Specific concerns addressed include women's health, haemophilia, workplace health and safety, prisons, and safe sex.
