Five Facts About HIV in the UK

Living Room, Inc

From theinformationdaily.com

“Myths breed prejudice and lead to some service providers claiming they are justified in treating people living with HIV less favourably.”

NAT (National AIDS Trust) regularly hears from people living with HIV who face prejudicial attitudes from those who are supposed to be helping them; who face breaches of their confidentiality by those who are supposed to be protecting their private medical information; and who are directly discriminated against when accessing services.

The common thread in almost all such experiences is a misunderstanding about the current reality of living with HIV.

For this reason, NAT is challenging all providers of public services to ‘Fact Up’ this World AIDS Day with five key facts you may not know about life with HIV in the UK (United Kingdom) today.

The entire article and the five facts can be found here.
