Statement: National AIDS Trust, Terrence Higgins Trust and Elton John AIDS Foundation response to today’s Comprehensive Spending Review
"The Government was silent today on funding for HIV and ominous on public health.
"If it is serious about ‘combating health disparities’ it must fulfil its commitment to end new cases of HIV by 2030 by funding an ambitious HIV Action Plan by 1 December this year.
"The end of the HIV epidemic in England is possible, and it’s affordable. But it won’t happen without radical action. The focus is now on Sajid Javid and the Department of Health and Social Care to invest early and keep their promises on #0HIVby30. The clock is ticking."
