SiREN is the WA Sexual Health and Blood-borne Virus Applied Research and Evaluation Network. SiREN is a partnership between researchers, service providers and policymakers. SiREN facilitates evidence-informed policy and practice in Western Australia by:

  • Providing project planning and evaluation support
  • Developing research and evaluation skills
  • Identifying and promoting opportunities for collaboration
  • Developing and disseminating evidence and publications

The SiREN project has been around since 2012. The project started as a two year pilot project with a one year extension. SiREN's actions place Western Australia in a strong position to participate in and direct the national evidence-building agenda to prevent and manage sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and blood-borne viruses (BBVs).

The SiREN project is governed by a tiered governance structure to increase the potential for research and evaluation, knowledge dissemination, participation and cross- sector collaboration. The tiered governance structure comprises the following groups:

SiREN also hosts presentations on a variety of topics for the STI and BBV sector. To view a recent presentation on SiREN's work, click here.
