Type: FSRH Press Releases and Statements

The August edition of the Sexual Health, Reproductive Health and HIV Policy eBulletin is out now. It brings together latest research and new tools from the sector to support more effective delivery of care, alongside wider policy and clinical developments. The edition includes newly-published research from the National AIDS Trust (NAT) and Fast-Track Cities London demonstrating how public knowledge and attitudes are not yet keeping up with developments in HIV.

In this month’s eFeature, Richard Angell, Campaigns Director at Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), looks at what local areas can do to improve provision, ensure a more equitable delivery of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and bring PrEP closer to the communities who need it. This is further to £23 million of funding being made available in 2021/22 to cover the costs of delivering the treatment via local authority-commissioned sexual health services.

This month’s eBulletin also covers an update on Public Health England’s priorities for 2021/22 until its responsibilities are formally transferred, a new clinical statement from FSRH on pain associated with intrauterine contraception insertion and a new good practice guide from LGBT Foundation and NHS England on implementing effective sexual orientation and trans status monitoring.
