In 2003 the British Government published a consultation paper on a proposed Sexual Health and HIV Strategy for England. The action plan on implementing the strategy has now been published. You can read it, and other documents, in full by clicking on the links below.
The UK is a relatively low prevalence country for HIV infections as a result of sustained public education and health promotion campaigns. Nevertheless, HIV remains a life-threatening condition, and is still on the increase. The introduction of drug therapies have improved the lives of many people infected with HIV, but there is still no cure. The National Strategy for Sexual Health and HIV sets out the Government's aims for tackling HIV in England. Among other things, It includes goals for reducing the spread of HIV, sets standards for the treatment, support and care of people living with HIV and makes proposals to ensure that there is a sound evidence base for effective HIV prevention.
