HIV awareness lacking in UK

8th May 2009

Unicef has said that many young people in the UK do not know about the dangers of HIV, despite Britain having the most new infections in Western Europe.

Over 7,700 people were infected with HIV in the UK in 2007. Anita Tiessen, deputy executive director of Unicef, UK said: "More attention has to be given to preventing the spread of HIV by working alongside young people to make sure that prevention work is designed and delivered in a way that is 'youth friendly' and really meets their needs."
