Gillian Dean

Gillian has been an HIV Consultant in Brighton & Hove since 2001 and Trustee of MFF since the charity was launched in 2015. She has previously worked in London, South Africa, Leeds and Manchester.

She is passionate about increasing opportunities to test for HIV, both in the general population and for vulnerable minority groups. She wholeheartedly believes that service users should always be involved in developing services and innovating.

She co-chairs the Innovations in Testing and Care Implementation Group, the sub-group of the Towards Zero HIV Taskforce. With colleagues she developed a ‘world-first’ digital vending machine for distributing HIV self-tests in the community. She was project lead for the Martin Fisher Foundation 2018 Stigma Campaign and is committed to destigmatising HIV through increasing knowledge and awareness of how stigma affects people.
