The Royal Air Force do not intend to publish the evidence review that informed the policy changes for HIV and the Aircrew Profession.

The Royal Air Force’s evidence review was principally based upon work previously published by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency and UK Civil Aviation Authority guidelines on HIV in the context of aviation. The RAF benchmarked this evidence against the usual standards and risk thresholds that underpin military aviation safety.
