United Kingdom: Half of HIV Prevention Funding Cut in London, Says Terrence Higgins Trust
March 19, 2013
With the launch of Public Health England, the UK Department of Health has prioritized a new framework for sexual health that focuses on increased HIV testing for high-risk groups and "greater efforts to prevent STIs and HIV." The launch of the new framework coincides with £1.2 million in cuts for the Pan-London HIV Prevention Programme; the cuts eliminate more than half of funding for city-wide HIV prevention efforts. The Health Protection Agency reported a record number of HIV diagnoses among gay and bisexual men in 2011.
