Dates of existence

1988 -


The Australian IV League was formed in 1988 and incorporated in 1992; its constituent organisations at that time were the ACT Intravenous Drug Users League, the IV League of South Australia, the New South Wales Users and AIDS Association, the Queensland Intravenous AIDS Association, the Tasmanian Users Community Advocacy, the Territory Users Forum, the Victorian IV Drug and AIDS Group and the Western Australian Intravenous Equity. The League represents intravenous drug users with the principal objective of preventing the spread of blood-borne diseases such as HIV/AIDS and hepatitis among users, their partners and families. It advocates for the rights of illicit drug users, holds conferences and workshops and produces publications to raise awareness of issues. It changed its name to the Australian Injecting and Illicit Drug Users League in 2002 while retaining the abbreviation AIVL.
