ASHM Conferences
The Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference was launched in 1989 in response to the emerging area of clinical care for HIV. Since its inception 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 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 Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference is the flagship conference of ASHM, the Australasian Society for HIV Medicine. The conference is a major component of ASHM's contribution to education and information dissemination for health professionals working in the HIV, viral hepatitis and related diseases 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.

Since 2005 the Conference has been 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. Together, the conferences attract more than 1000 delegates from across the region.

The 2013 Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference was held at the Darwin Convention and Exhibition Centre from 21 - 23 October 2013 and was combined with the 2013 Sexual Health Conference, making it even bigger and better than before.

The 2012 conference held from 17 - 19 October 2012 was an excellent success. Full details on the conference including powerpoint presentations, webcasts and media coverage is available from the conference website.
