This study investigates the methods used to conduct reviews of the effectiveness of health promotion interventions. It aims to determine how different review methods affected the conclusions drawn, and to make recommendations on how effectiveness reviews in health promotion should be carried out.

This paper is about the HIV epidemic in the context of black Africans in England. It focuses on black African communities because they are disproportionately affected by HIV compared to other minority ethnic groups. It gives an overview of the current epidemiological status, HIV support and prevention needs and recommendations for policy and practice. The paper notes that the majority of black Africans are tested for HIV very late and are unable to benefit fully form available treatment and care. The impact of socio-economic factors is also discussed.

There is concern that the needs of people with alcohol related brain damage (ARBD) and their carers are not being well met by current service provision across Scotland.

The Expert Group which produced this report was set up by the Scottish Executive to achieve better understanding of the issues and problems involved, and to advise on how they can be addressed.
