Re-elected Victorian AIDS Council president Michael Williams said he is excited about the organisation’s new plan to use more preventative measures in their fight against HIV/AIDS.

The Melbourne lawyer and former public health worker was re-elected for his second term recently, with vice president Kirsty Machon and treasurer Greg Carter.

Williams said he would continue advocating for more testing and treatment options such as rapid testing. He has sat on the board for four years and said he would use his second term to engage the community “to the greatest extent possible”.

“I believe we can only do this by talking to and engaging more with gay men about the information and advocacy they require,” he said.

The recently released 2012-2017 Strategic Plan outlined its mission to deliver HIV prevention, education and health promotion to gay men and other communities.
