Common Ambition Bristol aims to reverse HIV health inequalities experienced by African and Caribbean heritage communities living locally.
By reducing the stigma within these communities around HIV and sexual health services and improving access to sexual health services, this three-year project, which launched in February 2021, aims to increase uptake of HIV testing. This could reduce both the transmission of HIV and the instances of late HIV diagnosis, and improve health outcomes for people who are diagnosed.
Common Ambition Bristol is supported by Bristol Health Partners’ Sexual Health Improvement Programme Health Integration Team (SHIP HIT).
This project is funded by The Health Foundation, an independent charity committed to bringing about better health
and health care for people in the UK.
