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.

APPG welcomes STOPAIDS to Parliament to discuss their new report shadowing DfID’s investment in HIV and AIDS programming

On Wednesday, the APPG welcomed STOPAIDS’ policy team to Parliament to present the findings from the organisation’s recent report A Stocktake Review of DFID’s Work on HIV and AIDS. The publication is based on STOPAIDS’ advocacy to support DFID to articulate its priorities within the global HIV response and ensure its current work is sufficient to deliver and coherent with its priorities.  

New and existing members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV & AIDS meet with civil society groups

As Parliament returned after the General Election, members of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV & AIDS met with eight civil society groups to discuss their priorities related to HIV in the new Parliament. There are an estimated 101,300 people living with HIV in the UK and each year 1 million people acquire the virus globally.
