How do we end new cases of HIV

In partnership with Terrence Higgins Trust

More than 40 years since the start of the HIV epidemic, the UK has the opportunity to be the first in the world to end new cases of HIV by 2030. But HIV-related stigma and discrimination remain high and public attitudes are too often stuck in the 1980s. Hear from a panel of public health experts, activists and people living with HIV about how radical reform can end an epidemic – and what could jeopardise this historic goal being achieved.

Two panels from the UK AIDS Memorial Quilt are currently on display at Millennium Gallery as part of the latest display in The Ruskin Collection: Hand, Head and Heart. This includes a brand new quilt for Terry Higgins, the first publicly named person to die of an AIDS-related illness in the UK. There will be the opportunity to view the displays before and after the event, and the panels provide context for the huge pain caused by the epidemic as we look towards ending new cases of HIV.

Panellists include Winnie Sseruma, HIV activist; Dr Claire Dewsnap, Former President of the British Association of HIV and Sexual Health; Richard Angell, Chief Executive of Terrence Higgins Trust; Greg Fell, President of the Association of Directors of Public Health; and Becky, Sheffield based HIV advocate and manager at BHA for equality, providing HIV support and prevention.
