Sexual Health & HIV Policy e-Bulletin
Supporting those working for high quality sexual health, reproductive health and HIV services since 2012
The Sexual Health & HIV Policy eBulletin was launched in October 2012 by the Medical Foundation for HIV & Sexual Health (MEDFASH) to keep commissioners, providers and others in the sexual health, reproductive health and HIV field up-to-date about policy developments following the implementation of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, which fundamentally changed the way that sexual health, reproductive health and HIV services are commissioned and delivered in England. Since the announcement of MEDFASH’s closure in 2016, FSRH has led on the production and dissemination of the e-Bulletin.
The aim of the e-Bulletin is to be the go-to source for the most relevant resources on SRH, a tool for individuals and organisations in clinical services, public health, commissioning, primary care and other related areas to keep informed of key SRH policy developments. Two surveys conducted by MEDFASH in 2013 and 2015 show that the e-bulletin has become one of the main sources of information for national policy developments in the field.
In 2018 the sexual health, reproductive health and HIV sector joined forces with FSRH to officially support the e-Bulletin, which is now published by a coalition comprised of the British Association for Sexual Health & HIV (BASHH), Public Health England (PHE), British Medical Journal (BMJ), Faculty of Public Health (FPH), Family Planning Association (FPA), Brook, National AIDS Trust (NAT), Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), NAM aidsmap and the Sex Education Forum (SEF).
Each issue contains an opinion piece and a round-up of policy news, evidence and other resources. Subscribing is easy and free, and the most recent issues can be found here. Archived copies from 2012 to 2016 can be found here.
