Targeted HIV prevention programmes for those groups at increased risk of HIV continue to play an important role in reducing the number of cases of HIV both in London and on a national level. The Department continues to fund the Terence Higgins Trust and the African Health Policy Network for prevention work both in London and nationally.

At a local level, it is for local primary care trusts, and from 2013 local authorities, to decide their level of investment in HIV prevention, taking into account HIV prevalence and their wider public health needs.
