This is the first annual report of HIV Ireland since we changed our name from Dublin AIDS Alliance. We believe this change will help to focus greater attention on the issue of HIV and lead to more resources being invested in HIV prevention, education and awareness programmes, in HIV and STI testing and in other supports and services being provided to people affected by HIV. The ultimate challenge for all of us involved in the issue of HIV is to reduce the incidence and prevalence of HIV in Ireland, to increase the numbers being tested for HIV and to develop effective education and awareness campaigns.

HIV and Persons who Inject Drugs
In response to increasing numbers of new cases of recently acquired HIV in persons who inject drugs (PWID) in Dublin, HIV Ireland organised a specific HIV information session in June 2015 for the NICDATF and supported projects in Dublin’s north inner city. HIV Ireland also supported the delivery of an information session to HSE Outreach and Harm Reduction Teams in the East Coast and Mid-Leinster areas in July 2015. New information posters and leaflets were developed to alert drug users of increasing HIV infections and HIV Ireland supported the promotion and distribution of the new resources.
