Who we are
What is HIV Prevention England?
HIV Prevention England (HPE) is the national HIV prevention programme for England. It delivers a nationally co-ordinated programme of HIV prevention work with UK-based black African people and with gay men/men who have sex with men (MSM). It brings together campaigns, online services, local work and policy work. It works closely with black African, gay, and faith communities, NHS clinics, local authorities and Public Health England.
The programme is funded by Public Health England. HPE is a nationally funded programme designed to complement locally commissioned prevention in areas of higher prevalence. It is managed by Terrence Higgins Trust.
What are we aiming to achieve?
HPE has been commissioned to deliver three goals. These inform all the work we do:
- To increase HIV testing to reduce undiagnosed and late diagnosed HIV.
- To support sustained condom use, and other behaviours which prevent HIV infection.
- To tackle stigma within both communities and more widely.
