Gay Men over 50 and Living with HIV in South East London Research
Posted on: March 31 2015, 05:26 pm

As part of a research project into the experience of getting older with HIV, we would like to hear from gay/bisexual men or MSM who are HIV positive, aged 50 or older and who live in South East London (Lambeth, Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich or Bexley).

The research is run by the Metro Centre in partnership with the University of Greenwich and aims to influence services for older people with HIV in the area.

You would need to attend a one-off informal focus group. The group would last between one and two hours and would be held at Metro’s offices in Vauxhall in late April. In return, we will pay £30 in cash as a thank you for taking part. There is no need to prepare for focus groups and the discussion will be guided by questions from a researcher and research volunteer.

Signing up for the research will be easy. Respondents can either e-mail communityresearch14@gmail.com and we will arrange a time to call to explain more about the project. Otherwise, they can call Tony on 07858875061.





About the project and its partners
The South East London HIV Community Research Partnership is run by METRO and the University of Greenwich. It is an initiative involving community volunteers to carry out peer research on the issues and concerns of people living with or affected by HIV in SE London, and to influence local services and policies.
Our aim is to empower communities to produce their own research evidence on what works and what people want in relation to their local services. The partnership is funded by Health Education SE London, whose aim is to improve patient involvement in service planning and University of Greenwich Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF), which is a ‘seedcorn’ fund to foster innovation in research.
