HIV Prevention England Conference: May 2019

The fourth National HIV Prevention England Conference will be held on Wednesday 22 May 2019 in central London.

It will bring together partners in HIV prevention including sexual health commissioners, health promoters, sexual health and HIV service providers and community organisations, primary care professionals, faith and community leaders, researchers and other professionals who work in health, education or social care.


The themes that will be explored by the conference are:

  • Getting to zero HIV transmissions.

  • Systems strengthening and holistic approaches to HIV prevention.

The conference will be interactive and participant-focused.
