The approach focuses on providing essential knowledge on HIV and sexual health alongside practical advice on communication strategies and risk assessment. MEDFASH to date has been commissioned to deliver SHIP training in Islington, Enfield, Camden, Lambeth, Southwark & Lewisham, Haringey and Bexley.
MEDFASH is currently delivering the SHIP programme in Camden & Islington commencing April 2016, as well as in Haringey, commencing September 2016.
Recently published research shows how the delivery of the SHIP programme in primary care in a high HIV prevalence borough in London led to a tripling in the number of HIV tests provided.
SHIP sessions are taking place in London.
