Ireland: HIV/AIDS Stigma Persists, Says Dublin AIDS Alliance
December 10, 2012
The late diagnosis of HIV/AIDS continues to be a "serious problem" in Ireland, despite progress in medical treatment for HIV-infected persons. Persons who are diagnosed late do not respond as well to treatment as those whose status is determined early in the infection. The Health Protection Surveillance Centre reported 248 cases of HIV thus far in 2012, which represents a 3 percent increase over last year.
