The issue: 

The UK has some of the best HIV treatment outcomes in the world. But this is only part of the picture and there are still many barriers to people living with HIV getting the best care possible in HIV and beyond. The NHS is also changing fast and this is having an impact on care

What we do: 

We aim to improve the quality of life, and health outcomes, for people living with or at risk of HIV. We do this by leading informed conversations on HIV prevention and care with policymakers, healthcare providers and the media. And we provide guidance and recommendations to government, NHS staff and people living with HIV.
