New report - Women and HIV: Invisible No Longer
Posted on: April 9 2018, 09:53 am

It is with great pleasure that we share with you the Sophia Forum and Terrence Higgins Trust report – Women and HIV: Invisible No Longer.  The report can also be downloaded here: www.tht.org.uk/invisiblenolonger.

Invisible No Longer explored the priorities, experiences and needs of women living with, at risk and affected by HIV, in a first of its kind national study in the UK. The full report details a range of findings, and clear recommendations for action. In addition, these five key asks summarise the change we need and want to see to ensure that women are Invisible No Longer in HIV prevention, care, support, research and data in the UK.

1)      Achieve gender parity in the UK HIV response, ensuring equitable investment, priority and attention to women in HIV prevention, research, data and services.
2)      Ensure that HIV research addresses specific knowledge gaps around HIV and women and supports the full participation and meaningful involvement of women.
3)      Prioritise reducing late diagnosis of HIV among women, better explore the use of innovative HIV testing approaches and improve rates of HIV test offers and uptake in different settings.
4)      Improve data collection and disaggregation on HIV and women, ensure local level data is available and include sexuality data for women in national reporting.
5)      Invest in HIV support services, that meet women’s needs holistically and enable women to not just live well but to thrive, including peer support and support for mental health and gender-based violence.

We would like this report to be shared far and wide. Please get involved on social media by joining us in calling for a far greater focus on women living with and affected by HIV on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram by sharing our pledge:  I pledge to make sure women are #InvisibleNoLonger when it comes to HIV: www.tht.org.uk/invisiblenolonger. We would very much welcome your support in sharing the report on social media.

There is still much to do to achieve the recommendations within the report. Terrence Higgins Trust and Sophia Forum look forward to working with you to ensure that we come to a point where women are truly visible in the response to HIV in the UK.
