Key Populations: Understanding HIV and STI trends to help guide future prevention strategies

Key Populations seminar, Thursday 28 March 2019, 10-4.30, BMA House, London

Earlier this year, the Government announced a new goal to eliminate HIV in England by 2030. In order to achieve this ambitious goal, providers in the HIV and sexual health sector need to ensure services and interventions are reaching the key populations at risk of HIV. The trends in key populations have shifted since the beginning of the epidemic. This event seeks to determine what those trends are, and what the implications for service delivery may be.

Although new HIV diagnoses are in decline, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are on the rise and disproportionately affect populations also affected by HIV: gay and bisexual men, and black and minority ethnic (BAME) people. Furthermore, the sexual health of people living with HIV and those taking PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) remains an important concern for sexual health professionals.

This free event will provide information for service managers, commissioners, public health professionals, community organisation representatives and clinicians on the current key populations and sub-groups affected by HIV and STIs in England.

When: 10am–4.30pm, Thursday 28 March 2019
