ACON reports surplus and announces new Board
ACON’s AGM was held on October 31 at ACON’s Surry Hills offices. ACON president Mark Orr discussed ACON’s activities, campaigns and operations for the 2012/2013 financial year.
Orr said in 2012/13 the organistion focused on delivering a new strategy for ending HIV in NSW.
“Throughout 2012/13, we continued redeveloping our programs, services and strategies to operate within this framework. As a result of this process, we believe ACON is well positioned to be responding appropriately to the contemporary reality and impact of HIV in NSW. This includes working towards the goal of virtually ending HIV transmission in NSW by the end of the decade,” Orr said.
Throughout 2012/13, ACON distributed over 482,000 condom packs, 480,000 units of educational literature, 406,000 units of sterile injecting equipment and had over 354,000 visitors to the ACON website.
ACON reported an operating surplus of just over $81,000.
