NAT Topic - HIV Testing

HIV testing

The issue: 

In the UK, 39% of people living with HIV are diagnosed late, leaving them with shorter life expectancies. Over 13,000 people living with HIV do not know and therefore are not on treatment. Easier access to a wide range of testing opportunities is needed to increase the number of people diagnosed, earlier. 

What we do: 

NAT analyses and influences policy, commissioning and guidelines on HIV testing to ensure that testing reaches all those at increased risk of HIV. We call for development of and investment in new testing technologies such as HIV self-testing. We campaign for increased investment in HIV testing and use our research revealing gaps in provision to change practice.
