United Kingdom: HIV Numbers in Ulster Quadruple

December 3, 2010

New HIV diagnoses in Northern Ireland fell from 91 cases in 2008 to 68 cases last year, new Public Health Agency figures show. More than half of diagnoses were in men who have sex with men, with the majority of MSM infections acquired in the United Kingdom. Of the heterosexually acquired cases, most were infected outside the United Kingdom. In 2009, 424 people were living with HIV/AIDS in Northern Ireland, a 7 percent increase that officials attributed to effective treatments. Over the past decade, the Northern Ireland population living with HIV/AIDS has quadrupled.
