HIV Matters: an educational podcast series to improve outcomes for people living with HIV

08 June 2023
Volume 32 · Issue 11


The growth of podcasting since its development in 2004 has been phenomenal. Within health education, it has become an innovative way of broadcasting information on a wide range of subjects. Podcasting offers creative ways to support learning and share best practice. The aim of the article is to explore the use of podcasting as an educational tool to improve outcomes for people living with HIV.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic providers of HIV care have faced a number of new challenges. Services have been required to accommodate a safer way of delivering care in order to minimise the risks associated with face-to-face contact. During the pandemic this has been further compounded by the reduction in HIV specialist health professionals due to redeployment to critical areas. This has prevented innovation in care not only for those living with HIV, but also all long-term conditions.

As health professionals return to services and as the healthcare system continues to stretch due to increased cuts and reduction in staff, there is growing emphasis on HIV care providers to be more innovative with the care they provide. Therefore, it is necessary that services do not return to pre-COVID-19 ways of working, and to ensure the delivery of high-quality care and education to people living with HIV to meet a growing need for information (Budak et al, 2021).
