HIV GP Champions

The London HIV GP Champion Network.

Primary care plays a crucial part in London’s ambition of getting to zero preventable deaths, zero HIV stigma, and zero new HIV transmissions by 2030. The London HIV GP champion network is dedicated to improving care for people living with HIV.

The aim is to work collaboratively between all care settings to support people living with HIV, reducing obstacles to treatment and care and improving health and quality of life. This approach is consistent with and supportive of London’s overall HIV response, the Evolving HIV Care Report, the BHIVA Standards of Care, and the Fuller Stocktake on integrated primary care.

The network includes 16 GPs spread across the five London integrated care systems.

Key objectives of the HIV GP champions

  • Improve HIV awareness and tackle stigma in primary care
  • Improve health and well-being for people living with HIV
  • Improve collaborative working between primary, secondary care and HIV community organisations
  • Increase testing for HIV in primary care

What’s in the pipeline:

Beyond the core objectives, HIV GP champions have the flexibility to address local needs, from community outreach programmes to enhanced data collection and community-based clinics.
