Announcing a New Look for the 12th Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference

Continuing with the theme of innovation, the VH2021 committee has decided to move away from the traditional face-to-face conference planned for Brisbane and adopt a hub model for the conference in 2021.

The committee believes that this model will allow us to provide quality content and the opportunity for face-to-face interaction, whilst still ensuring the safety of our delegates and speakers.

What is a hub conference?

The Brisbane and Sydney hubs will allow our community to come together to learn, connect, network, and collaborate over the three-day conference.

All three days will be live streamed, allowing delegates who are not able to attend one of the two hubs to join via a virtual platform. Other delegates will have one or two days of face-to-face interaction and networking, and then attend the remaining days virtually from their homes or offices.

Where are the hubs?

Sunday 30 May:

Sofitel Central, Brisbane, QLD

Monday 31 May and Tuesday 1 June:

Sydney Masonic Centre, Sydney, NSW

Full conference registration allows access to one of the above hubs and full access to the virtual content for all three days.

Alternatively, you can register for virtual attendance.


12th Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference

The Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference is run by ASHM in collaboration with key sector partners as a platform for the dissemination and presentation of new and innovative research findings and better management across the Australasian viral hepatitis sector. Through this forum we aim to support the health workforce, government and community to work towards the elimination of hepatitis B and hepatitis C and supporting the communities living with these conditions in Australia, New Zealand and the Asia and Pacific regions.

Conference Theme: Progress towards hepatitis elimination targets: Taking stock and innovating for the future.
