SiREN (WA Sexual Health and Blood-borne Virus Applied Research and Evaluation Network), August 2021
Standard registrations for the 2021 Sexual Health + HIV&AIDS Conferences close this Sunday, August 22!
Joint Australasian HIV&AIDS and Sexual Health Conferences will once again be hosted in a virtual format between 6 to 9 September, following the success of last year’s inaugural virtual conferences.
The annual conferences are a platform for the dissemination and presentation of new and innovative research findings across the sexual health and HIV/AIDS sectors. Convened by the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine, the event facilitates dialogue between researchers, community, government, clinicians, students and more from different geographic locations inside Australasia and from the region.
