World AIDS Day

I recently blogged about HIV and AIDS here following my visit to the AIDS Consortium AGM. And of course – today is World AIDS Day.

There is a message from Nick Clegg on the DFID website setting out some of our work on HIV and AIDS. And it was good to see David Cameron too raising the issue of the number of people in this country who are infected and don’t even know.

Whether here or in Africa – the crucial step is to get tested. The world has moved on so far, thank goodness, from those early terrifying days and years. Now we can live with AIDS – so long as we know our status.
