Government recognises scale of undiagnosed HIV in public health strategy

The APPG has ensured that HIV is part of the government’s new Public Health strategy and that there will be an increased focus on reducing undiagnosed HIV in the years to come.

David Cairns MP, Chair of the APPG on HIV and AIDS, said

“It was not clear that HIV was even going to get a mention in the Public Health White Paper, but we have been arguing non-stop to ensure it was recognised as one of today’s key public health challenges.
