Synopsis

This report continues the practice of presenting an annual major analysis and review of the epidemiology of HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) in the United Kingdom. This is the first report, however, to bring together these intersecting epidemics along with improved information on the behaviours that underpin their transmission.

While it is not our intention to cover HIV and STIs in great depth, we have aimed to produce a report that provides a comprehensive overview of recent trends, considers new developments, and highlights potential areas for concern. The presentation of complex analyses has been simplified as much as possible, although the detailed data are available in electronic form for anyone wishing to study them further. To aid interpretation of the analyses, commentaries on a number of related issues have also been included. We also draw your attention to the more detailed data supplements and publications from the Health Protection Agency which accompany this report and are available below.

  • The AIDS/HIV Quarterly Surveillance Tables: cumulative data to end June 2003
  • Survey of Prevalent HIV Infections Diagnosed: data tables for 2002
  • Supplementary data tables of the Unlinked Anonymous Prevalence Monitoring Programme: data to end of 2002
  • Supplementary data tables of Sexually Transmitted Infections in the UK: data to end of 2002

This report is timely, with several national initiatives now being implemented to improve sexual health. We hope that the report will continue to provide much needed information on the distribution and determinants of HIV and STIs in the United Kingdom and the effectiveness of prevention interventions.
