Sexual Health Conference

The Australasian Sexual Health Conference is convened by ASRHA. The conference encourages all disciplines involved in sexual health medicine and sexual health promotion to come together and share experiences, new research and discuss national and local responses to sexual health in Australasia.

2023 Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference

ASHM is pleased to host the Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference in collaboration with the Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Alliance.

The Manly Pacific Hotel, Sydney, will host this three-day face-to-face conference from 18 – 20 September 2023.


The Australasian Sexual and Reproductive Health Day (ASRH day) commenced in 2021 as an affiliated event of the well-established Joint Australasian HIV&AIDS and Sexual Health Conferences. It was created out of an identified need to strengthen the linkages between sexual and reproductive health services and rights. Due to the success of this event over the last two years, in 2023, the ASRH Day will be incorporated into the main Sexual Health Conference, officially acknowledging the inclusion of reproductive health within the program.

The HIV/AIDS conference will not be held in 2023 due to the International AIDS Society Conference being held in Australia. However, the program will rejoin the Sexual and Reproductive Health Conference in 2024.
