Local Authorities have primary responsibility for commissioning human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) prevention interventions based on the needs of their local population, including HIV prevention messaging in community support settings such as women’s health groups, general practitioner surgeries and non-health settings.

The Department is investing over £3.5 million to deliver the National HIV Prevention Programme, to work alongside local prevention activities by developing resources for populations most affected by HIV that can be adopted locally and used in a range of settings.
