HIV Pushing Sufferers in Britain Into Poverty

December 8, 2006

According to a report by the National AIDS Trust and the AIDS charity Crusaid, one-third of British people diagnosed with HIV have sought poverty-relief assistance. "HIV often drives people into poverty, and poverty makes the condition more difficult to manage," said Yusef Azad of NAT. The report calls on government and law enforcement to craft policies that address HIV hate crimes, unemployment and inadequate housing among HIV patients. "The asylum and immigration system needs to insure people living with HIV have enough to live on ... and should allow people who have been here for six months the right to work," said Azad.
