ASHM contributes to research on HIV, viral hepatitis and sexually transmissible infections in a number of critical ways:



ASHM provides and facilitates the sharing of research findings. These include the Australasian HIV & AIDS Conference, the Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference and the Australasian Sexual Health Conference.

Our Conference Division also supports the promulgation of research through providing conference services to other professional organisations and groups that work in HIV, viral hepatitis, sexual health and related areas.



ASHM also partners formally with others in research projects and ASHM is represented at a CI, AI, collaborator or partner on a number of research projects.

In addition ASHM often supports the research efforts of third parties who have a research interest in HIV, viral hepatitis and sexual health.

The ASHM Scholarship Program supports members and sector partners to attend research conferences in Australia and overseas. Scholarship recipients are required to contribute to the ASHM Blog​ and to report back to peers on key research presented at conferences.​
