Overview of the National HIV Prevention Programme and what we have commissioned in 35 high prevalence areas in England.
The concept of MARPs and HPE’s strategy target prevention work effectively and efficiently (at a programme level)
Some examples/case studies of how HPE use this definition to deliver a programme for DH (meet their requirements) and target interventions where most needed in context of diminishing resources
Some examples of work we commissioned currently being delivered and what learning we can share with HA’s:
- HIV testing in saunas
- Home sampling and the opportunities/risks this presents
- Work around drug use and prevention
- Motivational interviewing
- Hopefully this will lead to an interesting discussion around
- How HA’s identify their MARPs and strategies we can share (non MSM/African)?
- Learning from MI in the community – what strategies work when time limited?
- The impact of home sampling and the recent legislative changes?
- Learning from work around drug use and prevention?
- Linking our work to Health Advisers in clinical settings?
