Description

Understanding HIV and STIs in BAME populations

Trends in HIV diagnoses and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) continue to demonstrate their impact on marginalised communities including BAME populations.

Whilst the HIV epidemic in the UK has diversified in recent times black African men and women still made up 38% of new diagnoses in heterosexual adults in 2017. Ethnic minorities within many of groups affected by HIV also represent the highest percentage of late diagnoses.

Similarly, although people of white ethnicity accounted for 64% of all STI diagnoses in 2018, the highest diagnoses rates based on population size were seen in black and black British groups.

This webinar will explore HIV and STIs within BAME populations in the UK. If you are a healthcare professional or work in a community organisation with BAME people we invite you to express your interest in our free, one-hour webinar on Wednesday 24 July 2019 at 1pm.

Event Speakers

  • Dr Rageshri Dhairyawan FRCP, Consultant in Sexual Health and HIV Medicine and researcher in race/ethnicity & health inequalities, Barts Health NHS Trust

  • Representatives from the Public Health England STI Surveillance team

An email with joining instructions to the webinar via the Zoom platform will be sent prior to the event.
