We continue to engage regularly with stakeholders in the development of the needs analysis, including local commissioners through the English HIV and Sexual Health Commissioners’ Group, Directors of Public Health and professional organisations. We will consider the impact of new challenges, including increasing complexity and epidemiological trends in sexually transmitted infections, antimicrobial resistance and monkeypox and the adaptability of the specialist medical workforce to respond to these challenges. The needs analysis will inform the forthcoming Sexual and Reproductive Health action plan, which will be published later this year.
