2nd December 2008

New figures have shown the number of people who have HIV in Northern Ireland has increased and could double in 2008.

The Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre has published figures which show there were 65 new cases of HIV in 2007, but 54 cases in the first six months of 2008. Dr Neil Irvine, who worked on the report, said: "Increasingly, we are seeing these infections now being transmitted within the United Kingdom, I am concerned about that."
