        On 17 December 2012, Sigma Research staff co-hosted a workshop at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine with the University of Greenwich, bringing together about 40 medical sociologists and other social scientists to discuss the ways in which new HIV prevention technologies are shaping HIV prevention research. The event was made possible through funding provided by the Foundation for the Sociology of Health and Illness. The social aspects of a range of new prevention options were discussed, including: the use of antiretroviral treatments in pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis among those without diagnosed HIV, topical microbicides, and earlier treatment for people with diagnosed HIV to reduce infectiousness. The highly interactive format was designed to bring together emerging social science thinking and scholarship in this area, identify priorities for a social research agenda on new prevention technologies, and promote collaborative working in this area. The event was structured around a discussion paper available at www.sigmaresearch.org.uk/projects/policy/project56/. The morning session included: • Introductory remarks by Professor Richard Hayes. • Talk introducing the discussion paper by Dr Catherine Dodds and Dr Peter Keogh. • Panellists responding to the discussion paper. included Dr Valerie Delpech (Health Protection Agency); Prof Jane Anderson (Homerton Hospital); Dr Yusef Azad (National AIDS Trust); and Dr Marsha Rosengarten (Goldsmiths University)
