Thorne Harbour Health is Victoria’s largest LGBTIQ health organisation and was formed by the community in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Thorne Harbour Health adheres to a social model of health aligned with the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion which determines that all people have the right to increase control over and improve their health.
Through a range of projects, Thorne Harbour Health delivers community-led and culturally appropriate services that improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTI people living throughout Victoria and South Australia. Our organisation is built on a historical foundation of peer-to-peer and professional expertise in services and programs delivered by staff and volunteers and in partnership with other organisations.
Informed by our experience with the community-led response to HIV/AIDS, we now offer a growing range of health services and programs aimed at various LGBTI communities.
