The Australasian sexual health conference was held at the National Convention Centre in Canberra for three days. The opening keynote address was given by James Ward, Program Head of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research Program at The Kirby Institute. The presentation focused on equality in health outcomes for Australia's First Peoples in terms of sexually transmissible infections (STIs) and bloodborne viruses. The conference program also included presentations from a range of international, interstate, and local people and covered topics such as communicating healthy sexuality, strategies to connect with hard-to-reach groups, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, and updates on the diagnosis and treatment of STIs.
Belinda Urquhart from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet held an internet café on day 1 of the conference. Delegates were keen to hear about the sexual health content available on the HealthInfoNet website, including information on hepatitis and HIV/AIDS. The Australasian sexual health conference was attended by over 1,000 delegates. The conference coincided with the final day of the Australasian HIV/AIDS conference and the first day of Ngarra - an event that showcases initiatives in Indigenous sexual health.
