HIV Prevention England (HPE) is the national HIV prevention programme for England. It delivers a nationally co-ordinated programme of HIV prevention work with UK-based black African people and with gay men/men who have sex with men (MSM). It brings together campaigns, online services, local work and policy work. It works closely with black African, gay, and faith communities, NHS clinics, local authorities and Public Health England.
HPE is a nationally funded programme, funded by Public Health England, designed to complement locally commissioned prevention in areas of higher prevalence. It is part of Terrence Higgins Trust.

GMI Partnership is a consortium of 3 charities (Positive East, Spectra and Metro). They provide local HIV Prevention and Support services in the areas of East, West and South London, but have joined together as the GMI Partnership to provide services for gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men throughout London. They also manage the Do It London Campaign, in partnership with the Freedoms Shop, who provide low-cost condoms that can be shipped directly to you.
The London HIV Prevention Programme (LHPP) is a London-wide sexual health promotion initiative. It aims to increase HIV testing and promote prevention choices to Londoners.
The programme is funded by London boroughs and managed on their behalf by Lambeth Council.
As well as our city-wide Do It London campaigns, the LHPP also provides a free condom distribution, outreach and rapid HIV testing service for men who have sex with men (MSM).
