Urgent: NICE HIV testing public health advisory committee members needed
Posted on: April 27 2015, 10:46 am

URGENT:  Deadline now 9.00 am Friday 1 April
HIV Testing:  NICE recruiting community and professional members for the HIV testing public health advisory committee 
For all members not aware of this opportunity, please see details below.  As a member of a NICE standing committee, I would be happy to help community members with applications – Jo Josh.

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is reviewing its guideline on ‘HIV testing: encouraging uptake among at-risk groups’ and recruiting both professional and HIV community (lay) members with recent experience of, or involvement with, HIV testing. You can see full details on the NICE web site.
https://www.nice.org.uk/get-involved/join-a-committee/lay-member-hiv-testing-phac

The successful applicant will become the ‘topic expert’ community member of the committee developing guidance on HIV testing.

NICE is also recruiting people working in HIV healthcare with an involvement with HIV testing, such as providers of HIV testing in a range of voluntary and community sectors working with various population groups; providers of testing in primary care settings and health promotion and public health practitioners and academics working in HIV prevention. 

https://www.nice.org.uk/get-involved/join-a-committee/member-hiv-testing-phac

The guideline will cover how to encourage people in at-risk groups to have HIV tests. As a result, it will update and replace NICE’s current guidelines on HIV testing in black Africans and HIV testing in men who have sex with men (NICE guidelines PH33 and PH34) as set out in the update decision.

The guideline will also examine the evidence on testing for HIV at home, and taking samples at home for an HIV test. This guideline will be used to develop the NICE quality standard on HIV testing: encouraging uptake through interventions such as increasing awareness through media campaigns/social media/leaflets/community group engagement and reviewing service delivery changes to increase opportunities for testing.
