An expert group is to be established to develop an ‘Ending HIV transmission in England Action Plan’ by the autumn of 2019 that will set out the key policies and activities to achieve the goal of ending HIV transmission in England by 2030. An important aspect of this will be identifying the barriers to individualised risk assessment and prevention advice, testing and early treatment, focusing on high-risk groups, particularly gay and bisexual men, people who inject drugs and black and minority ethnic group populations.
