Earlier this year the Government has recently published its long awaited Sexual Health Strategy. The National AIDS Trust (NAT) has highlighted the need for a national strategy for HIV to support the sexual health strategy which places an emphasis on prevention rather than developing coordinated strategy patients. With increasing numbers, an ageing patient profile and wide variation in patient needs, HIV remains very difficult and complex to manage. Despite the changing requirements of patients, services remain designed around an old-fashioned view of HIV.

The Government is seeking to improve quality and efficiency within the NHS but there is a fear it will make limited progress in the management of HIV until there is a change in the approach in management. The complexity of HIV and the chronic nature of this disease require a more strategic and updated approach.
