A public consultation on updating the Government's strategy for tackling HIV and AIDS in the developing world was launched in May 2007. The Department for International Development (DFID) received over 90 submissions in direct response to this consultation.

Since June 2007 DFID has received over 50,000 letters, postcards and e-mails from members of the public about various aspects of AIDS policy and expenditure. DFID Ministers have also received more than 700 letters from MPs writing on behalf of constituents and other interested groups.
