The HIV diagnosis is continuing to fall in the United Kingdom for the first time in compliance with UN targets for diagnosis, treatment and transmission, according to a report from the Public Healthcare Unit.

The prevention of end of the HIV epidemic was not said.

The UK's new HIV diagnoses fell by 17% from 2016 to 2017, spread among bisexual men and women.

The latest data from PHE's HIV infections show that in general, in England and United Kingdom, there have been three major goals in 90% of the UN / HIV AIDS Program (UNAids).

  • A diagnosis of 92% of the person living with HIV infection in the United Kingdom is diagnosed
  • 98% of people who receive treatment
  • 97% of those who receive treatment, leaving them unable to overcome the infection

In general, 87% of those living with HIV in Britain are not able to detect viral load and, as a result, others can not infect.

The countries around the world gave a deadline of 2020, but the United States met the 2017 goals.

The UK was successful in HIV testing more, before condom use increased and before its treatment began, PHE said.

The use of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PREP), before slowing down the daily life of the pituitary-consuming HIV, may also be a factor.

According to the report, the trend of new liver diagnoses over many years has been steadily declining and the HIV transmission in the most affected group of viruses – men have sex with men.

In 2017, 4,363 cases of HIV in Britain were reported (3,236 men) and almost half were diagnosed at the end of the stage.

Prof. Noel Gill, Head of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Head of Environmental Health at HIV, said prevention efforts were underway.

But he said it was essential that people believed that they were having a liver test, because early diagnosis is crucial for stopping the transmission.

"Our efforts must be to eradicate HIV.

"The treatment of HIV is freely and highly effective in order to live a long and healthy life.

"There are several ways today to protect people or protect themselves from HIV, including condoms, Ready, regularly starting HIV testing and antiretroviral treatment."

About 102,000 people live in the UK living in HIV, but 8,000 (8%) still do not know about their infections.

Ian Green, the executive of the Terrence Higgins Trust, said "fantastic news" in the United States got the United Nations goals.

But now it was a new and ambitious goal.

"That's a long way off, and we have to have more time, even when we are working to end the transmission of new HIV infections in the UK.

"This is a key moment and we can not compromise the progress made."

Deborah Gold, CEO of the National Aids Trust, said the United Kingdom was head of HIV.

"It's a wonderful moment in the fight against HIV, it seems that everything is possible.

"With the aim of eradicating the HIV threat to public health, and the true commitment of the United Nations to end the stigma related to HIV," he said.
