These articles present relatively recent qualitative research findings that provide insight into current issues in HIV prevention, treatment care and support affecting women in the UK.
They may be a useful source for researchers exploring these issues further, for service providers who want greater insight into similar issues they are responding to or for others looking to understand the experience of women living with HIV in the UK.
A literature review of peer reviewed journal articles was conducted in Autumn 2015 using the PubMed data base for keywords including: women or gender + HIV or AIDS + UK or Great Britain.
The review was intended to make available recent articles on women in the UK which explored psycho/social issues rather than biomedical aspects.
Clearly there are gaps in knowledge in terms more recent findings, representation of regions of the UK, and range of demographic groups. We urge for a continued research agenda which helps enhance HIV prevention, treatment care and support for women in the UK and around the world.
