The Review of the National Strategy on Sexual Health and HIV: Key conclusions and where next?

This meeting was a joint meeting of the APPG on AIDS and the All Party Parliamentary Pro-Choice and Sexual Health Group.

The 2001 National Strategy for Sexual Health and HIV outlined the journey which had to be made to improve sexual health and HIV services and outcomes in England. The 2008 Review of the National Strategy assesses its impact to date, and highlights the significant developments which have taken place since publication.

The Review, carried out by the Medical Foundation for AIDS and Sexual Health (MedFASH) and commissioned by the Independent Advisory Group on Sexual Health and HIV, recommends a wide-ranging set of actions at national, regional and local level to drive further improvements. Ruth Lowbury, Executive Director of MedFASH gave a presentation on the key conclusions and points for further action.

The meeting also included a presentation from Baroness Gould, as Chair of the Independent Advisory Group on Sexual Health and HIV and David Borrow MP who reflected on key lessons for HIV.
