HIV positive and having unsafe sex

23rd June 2008

A study by the Medical Research Council has found that one third of gay men in the UK who are aware they have HIV are continuing to have "unprotected sex".

The research also showed 40% of the 300 - from the 3,500 men interviewed - were not aware they had the virus. Will Nutland, from the HIV charity the Terence Higgins Trust, said: "What we don't necessarily want to see is an across the board increase in testing. We want to see gay men who are taking the greatest number of risks testing more often."
