Stephen Doughty MP speaking on a panel at the International AIDS Conference about the APPG’s latest report No One Left Behind

In the past few months the APPG has been busy launching our latest report “No One Left Behind”, promoting our report at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam and meeting with various organisations in Parliament. To find out more read on…

Report launch

Amidst World Cup mania In July we launched our latest report “No One Left Behind: towards a sustainable HIV response for key populations and women and girls” in Parliament. The launch, which was hosted alongside STOPAIDS and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance was a celebration of over a year’s work with speakers from DFID, Chair of the Key Populations Consortium in Kenya, Grace Kamau and Maria Phelan from the Robert Carr Civil Society Networks Fund. You can find a copy of our report on our website.

Amsterdam

A week later, Chair of the APPG Stephen Doughty MP and Vice Chair, Baroness Barker attended the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam and spoke at numerous events highlighting the latest findings from our report. We were delighted to hear the UK Government’s announcement that it would increase funding to the Robert Carr Civil Society Networks Fund by 20% - one of the key policy asks in our report. 

other meetings

The APPG was also delighted to host CHIVA’s young advocates on 10th July in Parliament. The meeting was a chance for young people to speak face to face with Parliamentarians about their experience of living with HIV in the UK. We are working with CHIVA to follow up on some of the key policy concerns that were raised in this meeting.

coming up

We have a number of events coming up in the next few months. We are hosting a lunch time briefing for Parliamentarians on the future of public health spending with Terrence Higgins Trust and the APPG on Sexual and Reproductive Health. We are also working towards our World AIDS Day parliamentary reception with STOPAIDS and International HIV/AIDS Alliance. More details soon to follow. 

 We are delighted to co-host the Halve report launch on 10th October to celebrate the culmination of Halve It’s work and their latest findings in: “A road map for eliminating late diagnosis of HIV in England.”
