New Making it Count website launched

Making it Count is the CHAPS national HIV prevention programme’s strategic plan to prevent sexual HIV transmissions among gay men, bisexual men and other men that have sex with men (MSM) in England. This month Sigma Research (London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine) have launched an all new Making it Count website at on behalf of the CHAPS partnership. Building on the four printed editions of Making it Count (MiC) published in 1998, 2000, 2003 and 2011, the content has been updated and reorganised to make it easier to navigate the wide range of information covered in the framework. 
It includes information on:

  • HIV among MSM in England
  • The Making it Count approach
  • Sexual risk and precaution
  • Planning HIV prevention 

The site also contains new information to help with commissioning, planning and delivering interventions. These (blue-button) sections help put the theory, goals and aims of MiC into the context of day-to-day activity, by describing the usual range of HIV prevention interventions commissioned and delivered. These sections contain 30 case studies of successful interventions from a variety of gay men’s health agencies across England, which also rotate across the homepage, alongside a newsfeed from NAM and a selection of downloadable MiC Briefing Sheets on specific topics of concern to HIV health promoters.
