Welcome to the June 2018 Sexual Health & HIV Policy EUROBulletin.
Our eFeature in this edition is with Dr Shema Tariq. Shema is the lead researcher for the PRIME study (Positive transitions through the menopause), looking at the menopause in women living with HIV. We spoke to Shema about the study and its findings – and the critical importance of meaningful involvement of women living with HIV in the research.
The European Parliamentary Forum on Population and Development (EPF) has uncovered and published evidence of a strategic plan put together by ultra-conservative groups in Europe aiming to roll back reproductive and LGBT rights in Europe. The report gives useful insight for anyone seeking to understand the anti-choice movement in Europe.
In this difficult political context, the positive result in the Irish referendum on repealing the 8th amendment was a welcome highlight of the last few months.
