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 at least 33 million people in the world living with HIV, the majority of whom still cannot get access to life-saving treatment. Here in the UK we will soon have 100,000 people living with HIV, thousands of whom are still undiagnosed. Until they know about their infection, they too cannot benefit from treatment.

Penrose Inquiry

The final report of the Penrose Inquiry into Hepatitis C and HIV acquired infection from NHS treatment was published on the 25th March 2015. The report is unlikely to bring comfort to those infected or to the families of lost loved ones but may at the very least provide an insight into the reasons why this tragedy occurred.

UK Stigma Index 2015

People living with HIV in the UK are invited to participate in this study.

The study aims to identify how people living with HIV in the UK experience HIV-related stigma and discrimination, and to describe the ways in which this stigma affects them.
