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 panel will include Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for International Development Baroness Verma, Shadow Secretary of State for International Development Diane Abbott MP and will hear directly from young people affected by HIV, Alexa Dominich, Chan Aye San and Cristian Sanduescu.
