Members of the Australasian Society for HIV Medicine (ASHM) include doctors, scientists, social scientists, epidemiologists, nurses and other allied health professionals who work in the field of HIV medicine, and the annual ASHM conference is targeted towards this membership. Furthermore, the ASHM has strong partnerships across the Asia and Pacific regions and, therefore, doctors, social researchers, nongovernment organizations and groups representing people living with HIV/AIDS from countries from the Asia and Pacific regions were well represented. The conference was jointly funded by the Australian Government, Queensland and Western Australia State Health Departments and the pharmaceutical industry, and was organized around four themes: understanding and identifying HIV: basic science, biology and pathogenesis; managing HIV: clinical management and the the experience of living with HIV; preventing HIV; and HIV in populations.
