The June 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 data on record levels of sexually transmitted infections, news of the extension of the mpox vaccination programme in London, and a joint position statement from several key organisations on how women's health hubs can be harnessed to improve access to care.

This month's eFeature discusses the ‘Shaping Abortion for Change’ (SACHA) study, written by Professor Kaye Wellings on behalf of the SACHA study team, and how its findings could help shape abortion regulation. Professor Wellings discusses the views of healthcare professional as well as patients on abortion law and provision in the UK, and their overwhelming support for changing abortion regulation.

The June edition of the eBulletin also covers an update to the HIV Action Plan which finds a fall in transmissions, concerns over the Government review of relationships, sex and health education, a steep rise in the rate of terminations of pregnancy in Scotland, and an invitation to take part in Sexual Health Week in September.
