Aside from meeting with politicians and supporters, one of Aung San Suu Kyi's major roles in Australia is to speak today at Melbourne's celebration of World AIDS Day.
The democracy activist's commitment to HIV/AIDS is not new.
"She's long been committed to this issue," Eamonn Murphy, country coordinator of UNAIDS Myanmar, said.
After she came out of house arrest, one of the first places she went to was a hospice for people receiving HIV treatment, Mr Murphy says.
In 2012, Ms Suu Kyi was named as UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador.
