Conference Overview

The Australasian Sexual Health Alliance (ASHA) is a group of partner organisations established to improve national and local responses to sexual health issues, via a multidisciplinary support network for the sexual health workforce. It aims to strengthen bonds between specialists, GPs, nurses, researchers and other key contributors to the sexual health sector, through collaboration in sexual health education, training, policy-making and research.

ASHA was formed as a committee under s51 of the constitution of the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM). ASHM provides much of ASHA’s infrastructure including the provision of secretariat, technical support, annual conference facilitation, and funding support. The committee of ASHA provides the guidance upon which ASHM acts in relation to policy, educational and resource based support for the sexual health workforce.

The Australasian Sexual Health Alliance auspiced its first Australasian Sexual Health Conference in 2013 in Darwin.  Prior to this the conference had been run by the Australasian Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine (AChSHM) who are still a key collaborator of the conference. 

The Australasian Sexual Health Alliance seeks to use the Australasian Sexual Health Conference to achieve its purpose of acknowledging and building on the specific expertise of sector partners in our common aims of improving national and local responses to sexual health in Australasia, in supporting and collaborating with close neighbouring countries to achieve these objectives.
