The December edition of the Sexual Health, Reproductive Health, and HIV Policy eBulletin is out now. It brings together data and new tools from the sector to support more effective delivery of care, alongside wider policy and clinical issues. This edition covers new guidance on contraception for people who have had breast cancer, new recommendations on gonorrhoea and mpox vaccinations, and draft updated menopause guidance from NICE.

In this month’s eFeature, Charlotte Chappell of social enterprise IRISi tells us about ADViSE, a programme designed to support staff in sexual health settings to recognise and respond to people in their care who are affected by domestic and sexual violence. Charlotte discusses the positive impact of ADViSE's inclusive and personable approach, and its effectiveness in sexual health settings.

The December issue of the eBulletin also covers updates on the HIV Action Plans in England and Wales, new HIV statistics from Northern Ireland, the introduction of contraception services in community pharmacies, and the results of a phase three trial of a new gonorrhoea treatment.
