The January edition of the Sexual Health, Reproductive Health and HIV eBulletin is out now. This month’s edition includes updates on access to abortion care, the impact of COVID-19 on STIs and HIV, and updated clinical resources.

In this month’s eFeature, Dr Jonathan Lord, Medical Director of MSI Reproductive Choices UK and chair of the British Society of Abortion Care Providers, throws the spotlight on abortion care and examines the impact telemedicine and the temporary approval of the home use of pills for early medical abortion (EMA) have had on women and abortion care services.

This month’s roundup includes a letter to Matt Hancock from key sector organisations asking for clarification on the timeframe for the publication of the National Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategy; the landmark report from the HIV Commission on how England will end new cases of HIV; updated FSRH guidance on essential SRH services during the third national lockdown; preliminary findings from the Natsal-COVID study; and Terrence Higgins Trust’s new sexual health resources for trans and non-binary people.
