The annual conference is run by ASHM as a platform for the dissemination and presentation of new and innovative research findings across the Australasian HIV sector.

Delegates to the conference come from a range of professional backgrounds including basic science, clinical medicine, community programs, education, epidemiology, indigenous health, international and regional issues, nursing and allied health, policy, primary care, public health and prevention, and social research.

The Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference is the flagship conference of the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM).

The conference is a major component of ASHM’s contribution to education and information sharing for health professionals working in the HIV, viral hepatitis and related diseases sector.

The Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference was first launched in 1989 in response to the emerging area of clinical care for HIV. It began as a small meeting of medical practitioners brought together under the umbrella of ASAP (The Australian Society of AIDS Physicians). The HIV & AIDS Conference has now grown into the region’s premier medical/scientific conference in the HIV and related diseases sector, attracting speakers and delegates from around the world.

The conference is truly multidisciplinary. Delegates to the conference come from a range of professional backgrounds including basic science, clinical medicine, community programs, education, epidemiology, indigenous health. There are a range of interests including international and regional, nursing and allied health, policy, primary care, public health and prevention, and social research.

The conference is held back-to-back with the Australasian Sexual Health Conference with one full day of overlap, providing a unique opportunity to look at HIV in the broader context of sexual health. The conferences attract more than 1,000 delegates from across the region.
