Kate Bath

PEPA National Project Manager

With a strong background in health and health-research related project management, Kate comes to PEPA and QUT from the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, and Sexual Health Medicine (ASHM) where she managed the National HIV Program. During her time at ASHM, Kate oversaw Australia’s HIV s100 prescriber accreditation program and the development and delivery of clinical education and national guidance for the HIV and sexual health workforce. She has contributed to a number of advocacy projects, including the publication of a world first national framework supporting the science behind “Undetectable equals Untransmissible” (U=U), and a successful submission to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee to change the PBS criteria for prescribing HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis, increasing access for rural and remote patients, and those at risk of HIV infection.

Kate is passionate about improving access to healthcare services and providing our health workforce with opportunities to increase their knowledge, understanding, and confidence in managing the care and treatment of those in need.
