Annual Conference 2020 - Virtual

19th - 21st October 2020



Registration now open!


Welcome Colleagues and friends. We welcome you to the first virtual annual BASHH conference; vBASHH. Whilst this will be a very new experience for the conference organisers, I am sure you are all becoming familiar with the format. We still hope to bring you the most up to date, interesting and discussion worthy work in the last 12 months. It will be an opportunity to ask the tough questions we all seek answer to in relation to sexual health. Thank you to everyone who has and will contribute; colleagues from within the speciality, patient groups, third sector charities and industry stakeholders.

We have paid for a platform which we hope will make the conference as hassle free and enjoyable as possible, and look forward to seeing you in our trainee sessions, plenaries, symposia and virtual coffee rooms. Please join us and make this conference what we know it can be.

We have rescheduled Bournemouth Annual Conference to May 2021 and will post details in the future. BASHH conference organisers appreciate your understanding, we will update members as soon as we have confirmed information.


The deadline for submissions has now passed and abstract committee are completing their reviews of all submissions. Authors will be notified of the outcomes of their submissions week beginning 24th August.

Please note that abstracts that have been presented and published elsewhere will not be accepted.
BASHH will continue to offer scholarships for individuals with highly rated abstracts (see scholarship tab below).


 Abstract Guidelines




The 2020

Programme is currently being developed. A draft programme will be available in the coming weeks. 



Bronze or silver scholarships will be awarded to accepted abstract authors by the scientific committee. Please note that you cannot apply for a scholarship directly. Scholarships will offer complimentary registration and a monetary value towards travel and accommodation. Successful applicants must be able to attend the entire conference. BASHH would like to thank ViiV Healthcare for their support of the 2020 BASHH scholarships through an educational grant.
