HIV prevention news: England

Since 2012, the Department of Health has been funding a national programme of HIV prevention for gay men, other men who have sex with men and African communities in England. It is called HIV Prevention England (HPE). For more information, visit the dedicated website:

From 2012 to early 2016, as part of the programme, NAM offered a regular update on the evolving evidence, news and policy of interest to people working in HIV prevention in England. An archive of the email bulletin, HIV prevention news: England, is available below.

Visit the resources pages for briefing papers, produced by NAM for HIV Prevention England, on Undiagnosed HIV infection, HIV treatment as prevention and HIV testing technologies.

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
