Positive Voices is a survey of the lives, experiences, and health care needs of people living with HIV in the UK led by Public Health England in collaboration with University College London and Imperial College London. The survey was conducted from January – September 2017, and over 4,400 people living with HIV took part nationally. Watipa is collaborating on the analysis of the survey results.
Results have been presented at the British HIV Association conference in Edinburgh (April 2018), and and the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam (AIDS 2018, July 2018). Positive Voices work has also been published in the World Health Organisation (WHO) good practice compendium in August 2018 (pg. 19).
