Grants opportunity to raise awareness of HIV in the lead up to World AIDS Day 1 December 2019

Red Ribbon

South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) HARP Unit are offering a number of grants valued up to $500 for innovative projects that increase community conversations about HIV within the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District.

This World AIDS Day, 1 December, let's fight prejudice about HIV, reduce stigma and discrimination, show our support for people living with HIV as we remember people who have passed away from HIV/AIDS.

The Grants Program supports projects that:

  • Tie into the World AIDS Day (WAD) theme - Ending HIV
  • Effectively engage the general community around HIV
  • Work in partnership, especially those in healthcare settings, including General Practice (GP), Hospitals,
    Primary Health Networks, and non-government organisations (NGOs)
  • Promote their project effectively, engaging media, including social media e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

Some sugestions to increase community conversations about HIV include:

  • Work with your Local Council to light a significant building red in the lead up to and across WAD
  • Run a social media competition on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.
  • Book a Positive Speaker from the Positive Speakers Bureau to talk at your workplace, organisation or event
  • Run a competition that engages community around issues related to HIV
  • Coordinate an awareness raising event like a Red Run (fun run) or Red Flash Mob in your community and invite the local media to promote your event

The grants are available to non-funded HARP Unit recipients and HARP Unit funded services are encouraged to partner with HARP Unit non-funded organisations to apply for these Grants.
