15  15 GUM Development Pilots  Ten in England  Invitations for Local Bids  BASHH involved with Department of Health in prioritising  Each gets about £250,000 over 2 years  What general lessons can we learn?

16  16 Main Issues arising from GUM Development Pilots  Recruitment and staffing  Accommodation

17  17 GUM Services Review

18  18 GUM Services Review  Being conducted for DoH by MEDFASH – Medical Foundation for AIDS and Sexual Health  Pre-visit questionnaire  Aim to visit all ~ 200 GUM Clinics in England  Local Sexual Health Economy also part of Review Process  Results should inform investment

19  19 Health Economics of Interventions in Sexual Health  Limited literature  Not well presented to NHS – especially with Finance and Commissioning Leads  Some interventions are cost-saving, others are very cost-effective  Consensus meeting  Dissemination of “Solid Facts”

20  20 The Economic Case for Investment  Average lifetime treatment costs of each HIV +ve patient £180,000  Each case HIV infection prevented saves £1/2-1 million in terms of individual health benefits and treatment costs  Cost of infertility due to chlamydia - 20% + of infertility treated by IVF

21  21 Example of Results Cost-saving  Condom provision for high risk groups  Condom subsidy schemes  Outreach health promotion and safe sex programmes for high risk groups and hard to reach groups  High quality integrated Sex & Relationships Education Outstandingly cost-effective  Wide variety of routes for condom distribution  Short access times for GUM services Averagely cost-effective  Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART)  Routine HIV screening for STD clinic attenders Not very cost-effective but within current NHS range Screening and suppressive therapy for genital herpes
