In the spirit of reconciliation the Australasian Sexual Health and HIV Nurses Association acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.


The Australasian Sexual Health and HIV Nurses Association (ASHHNA) is the peak Australasian sexual, reproductive health and HIV nurses professional organisation.

We are an association that exists for and because of the members. The executive is represented on many national working groups and organisations. Individual members of ASHHNA work in diverse roles and settings across Australasia and from the Global Nursing community

ASHHNA members support each other to share and develop knowledge and skills to improve the sexual and reproductive health of individuals and communities and support people living with HIV.
