PASSIONATE ABOUT SEXUAL HEALTH (PaSH) PARTNERSHIP
We are delighted to announce the success of the Passionate about Sexual Health (PaSH) Partnership tender submission to deliver the Greater Manchester Sexual Health Improvement Programme.
The PaSH Partnership is looking forward to rolling out a comprehensive programme of interventions to meet the changing needs of people newly diagnosed with HIV, living longer term with HIV or at greatest risk of acquiring HIV.
The GM Sexual Health Improvement Programme will include HIV testing, access to low cost condoms, a dedicated sexual health website, HIV outreach, and support for adults and children newly diagnosed with HIV or living with HIV longer term.
Medical advances now mean that HIV is a manageable long term health condition when diagnosed early, but continuing levels of misunderstanding and a lack of up to date knowledge mean that HIV remains a highly stigmatised medical condition.
The PaSH Partnership believe that the work they are looking to deliver through the contract will be key to achieving Greater Manchester’s vision of ending HIV transmission within a generation.
The contract will commence on 1st July 2017 followed by a period of mobilisation and transition with the aim of achieving full operational delivery by the end of the year.
