Sexual Health and HIV

The Health Promotion Service sexual health programme follows a whole population approach to addressing sexual health and HIV issues in Lothian directed by the Scottish Government’s Sexual Health & Blood Borne Virus Framework (2015-2020).

The sexual health team consists of two Senior Health Promotion Specialists who work across Lothian. The team’s activities and projects contribute to the implementation of the annual deliverables for the NHS Lothian Sexual Health & Blood Borne Virus Programme Board. Specialists also support training and resources for practitioners across the four local authorities within NHS Lothian with a particular focus on addressing health inequalities.

The team can work with partners to contribute to learning around curriculum for excellence, improve access to services, design and deliver training programmes, develop policies and action plans, pilot new approaches that address inequalities in sexual health, and provide consultation and design to produce sexual health and HIV resources and materials.
