About the PaSH Partnership
The Passionate about Sexual Health Partnership (PaSH Partnership) is a collaboration between BHA for Equality, George House Trust, and the LGBT Foundation.
The PaSH Partnership delivers a comprehensive programme of interventions to meet the changing needs of people newly diagnosed with HIV, living longer term with HIV or at greatest risk of acquiring HIV. Medical advances now mean that HIV is a manageable long-term health condition when diagnosed early, but continuing levels of misunderstanding and a lack of up to date knowledge mean that HIV remains a highly stigmatised medical condition and infection rates continue to rise.
The PaSH Partnership believe that the work they deliver will be key to achieving Greater Manchester’s vision of ending HIV transmission within a generation.
BHA for Equality
BHA for Equality (BHA) is a health and social care charity which exists to challenge and address health and social care inequalities and support individuals, families and communities to improve their health and wellbeing.
BHA offers a range of services delivered at local, regional and national level in the areas of HIV and sexual health, cancer, TB, mental health, health inequalities, community health education and engaging and involving communities in health and social care decision making.
BHA develops services by engaging and involving communities who experience inequalities to identify needs, barriers and develop services. Their engagement and involvement teams offer services to statutory services, health and care regulators and others to help them reach out into communities whose voices are seldom heard or acted upon.
Established in 1975, LGBT Foundation exists to support the needs of the diverse range of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans. We believe in a fair and equal society where all LGBT people can achieve their full potential. #EqualityWins underpins much of what we do and we aim to be; ‘here if you need us.’
We are a nationally significant charity firmly rooted in our local communities of Greater Manchester and provide a wide range of evidence-based and cost-effective services.
Each year, we serve over 40,000 people, achieving an average 98% satisfaction rating, as well as providing information to over 200,000 individuals online. As a result, we serve more LGBT people than any other charity of our kind in the UK.
Throughout all of our work, we support LGBT people to increase their skills, knowledge and self-confidence to improve and maintain their health and wellbeing. We also work in partnership with others to build strong, cohesive and influential LGBT communities.
Working together, we are changing LGBT lives for the better and securing a safe, equal and healthy future for all LGBT people.
