Abstract

This guidance is for NHS and other commissioners, managers and practitioners who have a direct or indirect role in, and responsibility for, increasing the uptake of HIV testing among men who have sex with men. This includes those working in local authorities and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors. It will also be of interest to members of the public, in particular men who have sex with men.

The focus of the guidance is on increasing the uptake of HIV testing to reduce undiagnosed infection and prevent transmission.

The recommendations include advice on:

planning services, including assessing local need and developing a strategy
promoting HIV testing among men who have sex with men, including outreach schemes and providing rapid point-of-care tests
offering and recommending an HIV test in primary care, secondary care and specialist sexual health services
repeat testing
HIV referral pathways.
