This report presents new research investigating the extent to which the needs of people affected by HIV in London have changed following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also sheds light on the resilience of voluntary and community organisations and their readiness to respond to these varied and changing needs.
This research comes at an important time in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic and with the approaching deadline for the Fast-Track Cities 2030 goals for London in relation to improving lives of people affected by HIV.
What does the report contain?
The research findings provide a body of evidence and insightful analysis to inform policy, practice and future research. In particular, the report aims to answer the following questions:
- What are the changing needs of people affected by HIV in London after the initial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic?
- How do these changing needs relate to the achievement of Fast-Track Cities London’s goals?
- What are the challenges anticipated by voluntary and community organisations serving people affected by HIV in London?
- How resilient are voluntary and community organisations, and how ready are they to respond to these challenges?
This report provides insights that will be useful to those supporting people affected by HIV, within and beyond the voluntary and community sector. DSC hopes that the conclusions and recommendations of this research will help inform policies and strategies that can sustain and strengthen the support provided by voluntary and community organisations to people affected by HIV.
Report author, Chester Howarth (DSC Senior Researcher), said:
“The voluntary and community sector is an important source of support people for affected by HIV in London, helping to meet the varied needs of a diverse population. Following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has had wide-ranging effects on society, this new research addresses gaps in our knowledge about the changing needs of people affected by HIV in London – and helps us to understand the resilience and readiness of the voluntary and community sector to respond.”
