King’s Fund report on HIV services in England
Simon Collins, HIV i-Base
A new report sponsored by the King’s Fund reviews the current and future newtowrk of HIV services in England.
The report explores the challenges and opportunities facing HIV services in four areas in England, and makes recommendations on future development to those in national and local leadership roles.
It explains the complex structure for commissioning separate but related aspects of HIV care and included input from all stakeholders, including people living with HIV.
The purpose of our research was to make recommendations to those in national and local leadership roles on how HIV services should develop over the next 5-10 years.
The researchers investigated the current situation for HIV services in urban and rural, low and high prevalence areas, undertaking focus groups with people living with HIV and interviewing around 100 people in local and national HIV services.
