In 2020, the joint Australasian Sexual Health and Australasian HIV&AIDS conferences were held online for the first time in their 16 year history due to COVID-19. These conferences are the primary platform for the dissemination and presentation of new and innovative research findings across the HIV and sexual health medicine sectors in Australasia.
The conference organisers approached me for communication support to write daily digests summarising key conference content. This approach ensured that delegates felt a sense of cohesiveness and community over the five days of the conference; raised awareness of the key conference topics, themes and outcomes that delegates may otherwise have missed; and created a lasting repository of conference content that can be republished and repurposed for many years to come.
The daily news digests can be found here.
