Demonstrating the value of Health Goals for Me framework in practice: Podcast series

In our continued pursuit towards the unified goal of good quality of life, the Moving Fourth Steering Committee developed the ‘Health Goals for Me’ framework; a three-step guide designed to support HCPs and patients through a collaborative and individualised approach to HIV care. Going beyond theory and incorporating these principles into everyday clinical practice, is key to helping every person to live healthily with HIV.

Through our latest podcast series, we explore some of the most pressing complexities associated with HIV management today – from mental health and stigma to ageing and comorbidities – through real-world examples.

In the episodes below, our Steering Committee hosts are joined by multi-disciplinary experts to introduce the key challenges of HIV management and share their experiences of implementing the framework to tackle these issues.

Take the first step in the 'Health Goals for Me' framework

'Ask & Measure' is about empowering each person living with HIV to engage with the management of their long-term healthy living. Discover this practical implementation system developed by our Moving Fourth Steering Committee, as well as recommended patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) for different QoL factors, selected from an in-depth audit.

HCP: healthcare professional; QoL: quality of life.

*Since the proposal of the ‘Health Goals for Me’ framework, UNAIDs have announced an updated 95-95-95 target to help end the AIDS epidemic. Despite this update, the Moving Fourth Steering Committee believe improving QoL remains a key goal to achieve healthy living with HIV. As such, the framework should still be considered an important component of HIV care.
