Abstract

This report outlines the results and final stakeholder evaluations for the intervention phase (phase 3) of the Interreg IVA Channel Programme 4282 IMPRESSHealth 2 study. It describes how recommendations from the phase 1 report were implemented in Kent, Medway and Picardy in Northern France, the impact which these had on the uptake and timeliness of HIV testing in these areas; and analysis of the reasons for variance between the two countries (UK and France). The report contains examples of some of the public health and social media materials developed to increase the uptake and timeliness of HIV testing, and the results of the stakeholder assessment of its success. Overall, the impact of the interventions have been successful, with widespread increases in both the number and timeliness of HIV testing in the UK though less so in France. Reasons for these differences are discussed in the report. The report also highlights the huge contribution which social and broadcasting media can make to public health campaigns of this nature, and the value of multi-sector and inter-organisational team working.
