The NHS long-term plan is a missed opportunity on prevention. The Spending Review must not be.

The 10-year plan will not focus the health and care system on prevention. The best way to do this is to ensure that public health services are properly integrated into the system and resourced.

Tackling HIV stigma in the health service

The Positive Voices survey shows the experience of stigma is clearly still a reality for many with HIV, even within the health service, where we should expect a better understanding of the condition. As a GP trainee, I am particularly concerned with how stigma may present in general practice.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
