Who we are

HIV Prevention England (HPE) is the new national HIV prevention programme for England.

It will deliver a nationally coordinated programme of HIV prevention work with UK-based African people and with gay men/men who have sex with men (MSM) which will bring together campaigns, online services, local work and policy work. It will work closely with African and gay communities, faith communities, NHS clinics, the Health Protection Agency and, after April 2013, Public Health England.

The programme is funded by the Department of Health for three years from 2012 to 2015. It is managed by Terrence Higgins Trust, supported by a team of five sub contractors drawn from the voluntary, public and private sectors: Black Health Agency For Equality, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, MBARC, NAM Publications & Yorkshire MESMAC. 

What are we aiming to achieve?

HPE has established goals with the Government. These will inform all the work which we do:

  • To increase HIV testing to reduce undiagnosed and late diagnosed HIV in both communities
  • To support sustained condom use, and other behaviours which prevent HIV infection in both communities

In addition, HPE will work to tackle stigma through its messaging, to increase the evidence base for effective HIV prevention and develop social marketing interventions using new information technologies.
