Episode Notes

Developments in science, medicine, treatment and prevention have dramatically changed over the last 30 years of Australia’s HIV response.

The Australasian Society of HIV Medicine Conference held in Adelaide in November 2016, gave our peak health organisations a chance to share information, collaborate on projects, get updated on the latest advancements and connect with people living with HIV.  But what’s in it for you and me?

It was my first time to the ASHM conference and I was keen to find out if these events actually achieved anything, so I spoke to:

Joel Murray – policy adviser at Living Positive Victoria

Nicholas Parkhill – CEO of ACON Health NSW

Jason Asselin – Research Assistant at Burnet Institute

Associate Professor Mark A Stoové – Burnet Institute

Brent Allen – EO Living Positive Victoria

And we see how John is doing having returned home to his family for the first time following his HIV positive diagnosis.
