What London can do together to get to zero HIV for Black people?

This online discussion was about what London could collectively do to get to zero HIV for Black people in London. The topics included:
- How can we improve HIV services for Black people in London?
- How can faith leaders support the Black community to get to zero HIV?
- How can we encourage better engagement with HIV prevention services?
- How do we work together to improve social justice and care for migrants with HIV?

HIV testing for people who are homeless
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant London has been working together to bring many people who experience homelessness into hotels across the city, so they can stay safe. This presented an opportunity to test many of these people for HIV and some other sexually transmitted diseases.
We hosted a webinar on the testing service on Friday 26 June 2020, read the slides here.
