Sexual Health Improvement Programme

The mission of the Sexual Health Improvement Programme (SHIP) HIT is to transform services to improve sexual health for the people of Bristol and the South West.

Our priorities are: increasing uptake of HIV testing; improving STI testing and responding to antimicrobial resistant (AMR) infections; increasing patient and public involvement in sexual health and ending stigma; ending domestic violence; reducing health inequalities; implementing informatics and digital transformation; developing a national network for sexual health improvement.
