Good News: UK HIV Diagnoses Continue to Fall

In some good news, the UK continues to have its HIV rates go down.

This mainly includes how the amount of new diagnoses of the disease has decreased by 17% between 2016 and 2017, all the while the spread of it amongst homosexual and bisexual men has overall declined.

Great Britain has also met three crucial targets set by the United Nations about the disease, including 92% of people with the illness being diagnosed, 98% of people with the virus receiving treatment and 97% of those receiving treatment being unable to spread the illness to other people. The targets the UN set were at 90% and the UK had met them three years earlier than expected in 2017.

Such news comes in light of how one Labour MP (that being Lloyd Russell-Moyle, the representative for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven) has admitted to having the disease during a House of Commons debate on the issue.

The MP stated that he ‘not only survived, I’ve prospered, and any partner I have is safe and protected’, but felt more had to be done on the issue.
