The HIV Action Plan, published in 2021, sets out our key commitments in relation to supporting the needs of people living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

In delivering against these commitments, UK Health Security Agency published the HIV Action Plan Monitoring and Evaluation Framework in December 2022. Reducing stigma and promoting quality of life are themes in the framework which includes a quality-of-life baseline indicator. The framework will continue to monitor and evaluate quality-of-life from this baseline.

The framework also states that further work will be undertaken with the HIV Action Plan Implementation Steering Group and with professional groups, the HIV community and academic partners to develop further indicators to monitor quality of life for those living with HIV. The British HIV Association in close collaboration with people living with HIV, has developed guidelines for the delivery of HIV treatment, care and support.
