Report Launch: HIV and ageing in the UK

Please join the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV and AIDS and Terrence Higgins Trust to launch a new report that explores what it means to grow older with HIV in the UK.

The report is based on research carried out by the Terrence Higgins Trust in partnership with peer researchers – older people themselves living with HIV. The report seeks to set out the needs and experiences of this first generation of people ageing with HIV, and the actions needed to ensure that their needs and concerns are fully addressed.

The event will be chaired by Mike Freer MP.

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.

Report claims the Health and Social Care Act is failing People Living with HIV in the UK

APPG: ‘People living with HIV are being denied the right to vital services which could lead to a significant public health failure in the not so distant future’

According to a report launched today by a group of cross-party Parliamentarians on HIV and AIDS, vital services for people living with HIV in the UK are under threat because of changes made under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
