A new survey of 1,350 people with HIV conducted by the charity, released to mark the 30th World Aids Day, found 50% of people said they had experienced discrimination due to their HIV status. It said that there were approximately 36.9 million people living with HIV at the end of 2017 with 1.8 million people becoming newly infected in 2017 globally. Figures revealed in 2017 show that 92 per cent of people living with HIV in the United Kingdom have been diagnosed, 98 per cent of those diagnosed were on treatment, and 97 per cent of those on treatment were virally suppressed. If the drugs are stopped, or not taken at the right time each day, the HIV virus takes advantage of this and starts to make copies of itself again. The World AIDS Day hashtag on Weibo features pictures of HIV patients (or people playing patients) asking for hugs, medical staff making classroom visits, and young volunteers collecting saliva for testing.

UNAIDS in its global report reveals that research "shows that 75% of all people living with HIV know their HIV status".

Mr Russell-Moyle, who was given a standing ovation by Labour MPs, said that after the shock of discovering he was HIV positive it was a "revelation" he could live a normal life "apart from a pill a day".

Recognising that mandatory testing would drive those at high risk of HIV infection beyond reach and prevent their access to public health preventive activities and other health services, the Government promotes voluntary confidential counselling and testing.

In Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia, Index Case Testing is used a method to target the people living with HIV who are not aware they have the virus. He wants people to know an HIV diagnosis is nothing to be ashamed of.
