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.

A report of key learnings with policy makers, health professionals, and community
