Who we are
The Albion Centre (Albion) is Australia’s only major multidisciplinary centre with a primary focus on HIV management.
Albion staff have significant experience in HIV, sexual health, hepatitis and education and training both in Australia and overseas.
Albion’s core approach is two-fold:
- To integrate prevention and care for patients, and
- To train people in the field of epidemic infectious disease management.
- Medical treatment and care
- HIV and sexual health testing
- Phone based information
- International development services
Albion also auspices the Ankali project, a volunteer based service supporting people with HIV.
Albion employs over 60 professional staff and has more than 130 volunteers who provide treatment, care, support and education.
Formerly the Albion Street Centre, Albion is part of South Eastern Sydney Local Health District and a division of the Directorate of Planning and Population Health. Albion is accredited by the Royal Australasian College of Physicians as a postgraduate training site for Infectious Diseases.
Albion is also a World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Capacity Building and Health Care Worker Training in HIV/AIDS Care, Treatment and Support. The Centre was awarded this designation in 2006, based on the recognition of Albion’s work and significant expertise.
The vision of The Albion Centre is for better health for all through local, national, regional and international partnerships.
Our purpose is to reduce the impact of HIV, sexually transmissible infections, hepatitis, emerging infectious diseases and other adverse conditions. We do this by enabling the delivery of best possible comprehensive prevention, treatment, care and support for affected populations. We endeavour to lead the way in the development and provision of expertise in high quality multidisciplinary models of clinical care, research and education, in partnership with others.
