New massive drop in HIV infections

-

Relentless figures. On Wednesday January 15, British public health officials released a new round of data, confirming the effectiveness of combined prevention, including the Prep tool. Public Health England announced that in 2018, the number of HIV infections fell by 73% compared to 2014. Among gay and bisexual men in the United Kingdom, it rose from 2,300 annual infections estimated at 800 in four years. Regarding concrete diagnoses of HIV, it is a decrease of 35% among gay and bisexual men and 29% in the general population. A brutal fall, but hoped by all, which comes to (re) support the urgency of making all the tools available to the most exposed people. Public health officials are clear: combined prevention works, and this new evidence is no exception. The activists rightly demand that England put (finally) wide access to the Prep to stop the avoidable contaminations. England, which remains one of the only countries in the United Kingdom that still does not provide access to preventive HIV treatment in its health services.
