Keep in touch with the latest HIV news

Published: 25 November 2013

This is the last edition of NAM’s regular newsletter HIV treatment update – but although HTU is coming to an end, there are still lots of ways you can hear about the latest news in HIV.

Daily news reporting

You can read all the news stories posted on NAM’s website at Our news reporting covers the latest worldwide HIV and AIDS news, including treatment, prevention, and hepatitis and TB co-infections.

You can find news from NAM’s own team of writers, plus articles we have selected from other sources. Our news stories report on the latest scientific and medical developments, but we also cover policy and practice from around the world. 

We know you value the analysis and comment we include in HTU features and we plan to continue publising feature articles online. This will include articles discussing issues in more depth, bringing together experts to debate areas of contention, and interviewing key players in science, medicine, policy making and delivery of care, as well as the people directly affected by what’s going on.

And while our online news coverage examines research from around the world, we will continue to keep you up to date on issues of particular interest to people in the UK, such as changes in the NHS and the social and legal environment for people living with HIV.

You can search our online news database, going back to 2001, by topic or date.

You can also sign up to NAM’s range of free email bulletins to keep you up to date and in the loop with the latest research, news and developments in HIV.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
