CliniQ is an HIV, Sexual Health and Wellbeing voluntary organisation. We are part of the HIV voluntary organisations sector and have worked closely with British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) https://www.bashh.org and British HIV Association (BHIVA) https://www.bhiva.org. We have presented at three International HIV & AIDS Conferences (IAS) https://www.iasociety.org and European AIDS Clinical Society conference (EACS) https://www.eacsociety.org. CliniQ were on the Advisory Board for the PrEP Impact Trial https://www.prepimpacttrial.org.uk. CliniQ are also a member of the campaign to end new HIV Transmission by 2030 https://www.tht.org.uk/news/uk-government-commit-ending-new-hiv-transmissions-england-2030.
The booklets were funded by Public Health England (PHE) HIV Innovation Fund as part of one of 13 HIV prevention projects to reach marginalised communities using culturally appropriate language and terminology. The two booklets and a leaflet on PrEP for the Trans and Non-binary communities were developed by 56 Dean Street and CliniQ in 2017 hence they are out of date and have not been available for sometime.
PHE commissioned Ipsos MORI to undertake a process and impact evaluation of the Innovation Fund and its projects. This report provides a summary of the activities and achievements of Cohort 2 – assessing the extent to which the projects met their intended outputs and outcomes, looking at what helped or hindered them to do so, and concluding with lessons learnt for both projects and PHE. A link to the report follows: https://www.ipsos.com/sites/default/files/ct/publication/documents/2018-07/phe-hiv-cohort-2-evaluation-report.pdf
Extract from Page 12 (you can find the following copy within the PDF link above):
“Trans:Mission (cliniQ) Trans:Mission project aimed at providing bespoke support and information to the trans community. Through a specialist nurse, health advisor and outreach worker they conducted weekly outreach work and HIV testing at a sex-on-premises venue for trans people, cross-dressers and transvestites in Central London. They worked with 56 Dean Street [https://www.dean.st] (a sexual health clinic in Soho) to provide the required clinical oversight for this work. They also developed three online & printed resources aimed at trans women, trans MSM, and for all trans/non-binary people about PEP and PrEP. These were designed in conjunction with trans people and [*]are available on their website.” (*Out of date and no longer available since early 2021)
