This consultation ran from to
PHE is developing a Strategic Framework to promote the health and wellbeing of gay men, bisexual men and other men who have sex with men.
Public Health England’s vision is to deliver a Strategic Framework that will promote the health and wellbeing of men who have sex with men (MSM), enabling MSM to enjoy fulfilling social and sexual relationships and live healthy lives.
In developing this Strategic Framework, Public Health England (PHE) has carried out an in-depth engagement process, including stakeholder workshops and the formation of an expert advisory group. Stakeholders are now being offered a final opportunity to comment on the draft Framework before its publication in June.
The Framework is consistent with PHE’s role in promoting and protecting the health of England’s population, and addressing inequalities. The specific ambitions set out in Strategic Framework with regard to the health and wellbeing of MSM reflects those included in the Public Health Outcomes Framework and PHE’s HIV in the United Kingdom 2013 Report.
Extensive consultation has been undertaken to date to inform the development of the Strategic Framework, and the final draft is available below. (Please note, this draft is in plain document format, but the final published Framework will be fully designed).
At this stage, PHE is inviting stakeholders to feedback on four specific questions:
- Are there any major gaps in our analysis of the health and wellbeing of MSM?
- Do the recommendations address the health inequalities we highlight in the document?
- Are there any major recommendations that we have missed?
- Do you have any other comments?
