HIV Prevention England (HPE) - Local Activation Partner (LAP)

Local activity delivered by the prevention team across Calderdale and Kirklees.

These activities support the national ‘It Starts With Me’ campaign and National HIV Testing Week by providing brief face-to-face interventions to help people reduce risk-taking and increase access to community HIV testing to reduce the incidence of HIV and the numbers of people with undiagnosed HIV.

Combination Prevention

There are various methods people can use to prevent HIV. People can use tools which suit their needs based on their HIV status, current relationship, the type of sex they are having, their finances and lifestyle. We can stop HIV by using at least one prevention method.

Treatment as Prevention:

People on effective treatment cannot transmit HIV to their sexual partners.

Anti-retroviral medication reduces the amount of virus in the blood to undetectable levels so that there is effectively no risk of transmission of HIV.
