UK Community Advisory Board (UK-CAB)


As an HIV treatment advocates network, at the heart of all our work is our ambition to give all people living with, and affected by HIV the support to have their voices heard.

Our online network

The UK-CAB online forums help to connect advocates across the UK.

The members-only forums enable advocates to contribute to clinical trial design, comment on treatment guidelines, communicate with other advocates and keep up to date with reports on the latest research.

Members can publish personal opinions and view or forward information from other organisations who work to support people with HIV.

Join in the conversation.

Standing together

As well as providing an online platform for our members to communicate, the UK-CAB Steering Group (or members representing the CAB with the Steering Group’s authorisation), are often involved in wider advocacy efforts in relation to projects and policy relating to HIV treatment and care, or wider health and social care, and public health issues.

Current priorities

Some of the current projects the UK-CAB is involved with include:

  • Leading the community response to the NICE (National Institute for Health & Care Excellence) technology appraisal for the first long-acting injectable HIV therapy
  • Supporting the third sector COVID-19 HIV Info Network with intel and evidence of the impact the pandemic is having on people living with HIV
  • Working with the British HIV Association (BHIVA) and members to provide accessible information for people living with HIV in relation to COVID-19
  • Supporting the British Psychological Society (BPS) and BHIVA to update the Standards for psychological support for adults living with HIV
