Welcome to the APPG on HIV & AIDS

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV and AIDS is a backbench cross-Party group of MPs and Peers in the UK Parliament at Westminster.

MPs and Peers who have joined the Group have done so because we are concerned about both the devastation that HIV and AIDS are causing in developing countries and about their impact here in the UK including in our constituencies.

There are almost 37 million people in the world living with HIV, the majority of whom still cannot get access to life-saving treatment. Here in the UK there are over 100,000 people living with HIV, thousands of whom are still undiagnosed. Until they know about their infection, they too cannot benefit from treatment.

The APPG on HIV/AIDS and APPG on Global TB will co-host the Youth STOPAIDS Speaker Tour

Youth STOPAIDS believe there is nothing more powerful than hearing the true-life experiences of people affected by HIV/AIDS and TB.

That is why every year students from across the globe travel to the UK to speak at different events about their experiences of living with HIV.

The speakers' powerful stories give a unique context to the key issues affecting People Living With HIV throughout the world, particularly access
to affordable and appropriate medical treatment.
