Contracts awarded to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) clinics are the responsibility of NHSE specialist commissioning groups and local authority commissioners who assess the need in their local populations and set the requirements of the contracts. Data on HIV treatment and care are collected from HIV services by the United Kingdom Health Security Agency and reported back centrally to assist commissioners and service providers in monitoring performance.
