The International Program extends ASHM's mission of supporting the HIV, viral hepatitis and sexual health workforce.
The Program generally aligns with those countries identified as priorities by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Asia and the Pacific in terms of national and regional HIV responses. It involves a a range of educational activities and programs in Asia and the Pacific.
ASHM partners with other professional societies that support the capacity development of the HIV, sexually transmissible infections (STI) and/or viral hepatitis related health workforce.
The aim is to enhance the clinical capacity of these countries by helping to build supporting networks as well as professional development.
The International Program also includes ASHM's Regional Partnership Program. The Regional Partnership Program aims to support sustainable professional capacity development in HIV and the related diseases sector. This is achieved through the provision of mentoring and the enhancement of leadership skills.
