Questionnaire Invitation
Posted on: October 5 2017, 05:17 am

Dear colleague,
 
Barts Health Sexual Health Services are currently developing a strategy to increase HIV awareness and testing among Black African (BA) communities in East London.
 
HIV disproportionately affects BAs, with far higher prevalence among BA heterosexual men (one in 56) and women (one in 22). Late HIV diagnosis also characterises BAs. East London is an area with a significant BA population and the national late HIV diagnosis profile is also reflected in the region.
 
As part of the process of developing our strategy, we would like to get the viewpoint of staff working/volunteering in third sector organisations and other healthcare providers in East London such as GPs, nurses and others.  We are particularly interested in identifying the barriers that stop or delay BA communities from taking up HIV testing opportunities.
 
I am writing to invite you to participate in our survey. Your insight is extremely important to us. It will help us improve our services in order to reach out to our local BA populations and benefit those people who are at risk of HIV in East London.
 
Your answers will be completely anonymous and analysed in combination with answers from other respondents.
 
We appreciate your time. Thank you in advance for your help.

Please kindly complete the questionnaire on the questionnaire link below:

 https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/blackafrican

We will be grateful if you could complete the questionnaire before 30th October 2017.
 
If you would like to discuss the any other issues that could improve HIV testing options for BA communities in East London, please feel free to contact us:

With best regards,
