To successfully influence policy the AHPN relies on evidence of need. To achieve this, the AHPN consults with its membership network, seeks expert advice and collaborates with academia and cross-sector stakeholders.

To date, the AHPN has used research to lobby the Home Office to delay the removal of people living with HIV from the UK until antiretroviral treatment becomes more widely accessible and has provided the Government with 10 key asks to improve the health and wellbeing of Africans in the UK.

The AHPN mobilises stakeholders in the research community to raise awareness of any inequalities in health in order to develop appropriate research responses and programmes.
