Tasmanian Council on AIDS, Hepatitis and Related Diseases

While working in partnership with Tasmanian communities towards the elimination of blood-borne viruses and associated stigma and discrimination, TasCAHRD provides services that promote the health and well-being of people living with, affected by or at risk of HIV and hepatitis.

TasCAHRD has multiple streams of service: health promotion, Red Thread Media, and tasPPL, the care and assistance program.

Our health promotion initiative, Bloodwise builds health literacy on blood-borne viruses and sexually transmitted infections to reduce stigma and transmissions while increasing testing and treatment. We offer Bloodwise education sessions for organisations and community groups about HIV, viral hepatitis, STIs, and reducing the associated stigma and discrimination.

TasPPL supports those living with or at risk of blood-borne viruses by providing case management, advocacy, referrals, financial assistance, and information about treatments, testing, transmission and prevention.

TasCAHRD publishes a quarterly lifestyle magazine, Red Thread  and also operates Red Thread Studios, an audio-visual recording studio for the community.
