The call for submissions of written evidence is now closed. Thank you to everyone who has contributed by submitting evidence on behalf of an organisation and in a personal capacity. We were delighted to receive a host of varied and detailed submissions from across the country, which will help to inform the recommendations of the commission to end new HIV transmissions in England by 2030.
As this first part of the evidence gathering process closes a new component opens, as part of our evidence collection strategy.
We are very excited that over the next six weeks, the commission will be traveling to cities around England to engage with local communities and organisations to better understand their challenges and successes on HIV treatment and prevention.
The commission will host Evidence Hearing sessions in partnership with local organisations in each city, who have produced unique programmes of activities for Commissioners to learn about the landscape of HIV in each local area. Each session will include an open evidence hearing, during which Commissioners will chair round-table discussions with attendees.
These hearings are open to the public and anyone can attend. Dates, timings and details to register for the hearing can be found below. The pages to register for later hearings will be added to our Evidence Hearings page soon. We would love for you to join the hearing.
