Type: Sexual and Reproductive Health News

This year’s Sexual Health Week theme is “relationships, sex and disability”, and the September 2019 edition of the Sexual Health, Reproductive Health & HIV Policy eBulletin brings you links to resources developed by Brook and other organisations to support professionals working in this area.

In this month’s eFeature, Dr Michael Brady, the Government’s National Adviser on LGBT Health, reflects on progress to date and identifies the key priority areas he and his team are working on to deliver an LGBT-inclusive approach in the NHS.

This month’s edition also highlights the Spending Round announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid, and the commitment, by Government, to a real-terms increase to the Public Health grant.

It covers Public Health England’s (PHE) first Infectious Diseases Strategy, updated figures showing that new diagnoses of HIV have fallen to their lowest level since 2000 as well as changes to the Public Health Outcomes Framework (PHOF) including two new sexual and reproductive health indicators on long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) and new STI diagnoses.
