ASHM’s work in HIV

As a peak organisation, we:

 

ASHM works in collaboration with sector partners, including professional organisations, research institutes, community organisations and people living with HIV, toward ending HIV transmission in Australia. We do this through collaborating on jurisdictional and national committees, jointly developing clinical education programs, projects , resources, and working in partnership on policy, recommendations and clinical guideline development.

ASHM has taken a leadership role in advancing HIV policy in Australia. Most recently the ASHM PrEP Clinical Guidelines were a key document that supported the approval of HIV PrEP on the PBS. ASHM also oversees key resources for HIV clinicians including the ASHM ARV Guidelines, HIV Management in Australasia and the National HIV Testing Policy, Find out more about ASHM’s work in policy and advocacy here
