More testing needed for HIV

6th February 2013

Researchers say that unsafe sexual behaviour is behind a “plateau” of HIV levels in gay and bisexual men, despite improvements in testing and treatment.

A study published in The Lancet has found that new infections reached a plateau of 2,300-2,500 annually since 2006 in England and Wales. But with a 10% increase in the number of men who have sex with men receiving HIV treatment and a reduction in diagnosis time, researchers say they are “seriously concerned” that the number of new infections has remained the same for just over six years.
