Research for
health equity

SHARE brings together leading experts to investigate the inequalities that lead to poor sexual health and HIV, especially in minoritised communities across East London. We aim to ensure no one is left behind.

Our vision

SHARE’s vision is a world where everyone – no matter who you are or where you live – can enjoy excellent sexual health, where new HIV infections are eliminated and in which people with HIV live long and live well.

Our community

SHARE has been established in the heart of East London where many minoritised communities have been disproportionately affected by HIV and poor sexual health. We work in partnership with local people to gain deep understanding of their lived experiences and to ensure that our research has the greatest impact.

More than 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK – 40% of whom live and access medical care in London.
