Sydney will host back-to-back sexual health and HIV conferences this month. The Australasian Sexual Health Conference runs from October 18 to 20, followed by the Australasian HIV/AIDS Conference 2010 from October 20 to 22.

Both gatherings will be held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour.

At the sexual health conference, topics will include the nature of human desire, and STI prevention strategies amongst adolescents. There will also be symposia on chlamydia, sexual assault, the sex industry, and sexual dysfunction.

The HIV/AIDS conference will include a gay men’s HIV prevention satellite event titled ‘Epidemic to Endemic’. This will be held at the Powerhouse Museum on October 19, and will bring together researchers, advocates, educators and policy makers to discuss HIV prevention in gay men.

Programs for both conferences are available online. Registrations after October 7 will incur a late fee.
