NPL is the longest established and largest BME charity in London addressing the sexual health and HIV/AIDS needs of its communities.

Currently, it provides sexual health and HIV/AIDS prevention and support services to South Asians (including Bangladeshis, Indians, and Pakistanis), Muslims (including Middle Easterners and Africans), Africans, Portuguese speakers (including Angolans, Brazilians, Mozambicans, and Portuguese), and Spanish speakers (mainly Latin American).

NPL exists to challenge myths and prejudices that exist about and within BME communities and to ensure that these communities have access to care, support, and culturally and linguistically appropriate information.

We aim to educate and empower our communities to face up to the challenges of sexual health and HIV, and to mobilise the support networks that exist for people living with HIV/AIDS.
