News from UK: 4 in 10 HIV+ Gay Men are Undiagnosed, say experts
The British HIV Association (BHIVA) Conference last week head that almost half gay men in the UK with HIV are unaware of their condition.
This year, the annual conference had set out to determine why so many men remain undiagnosed. The final session of the conference was held in conjunction with the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASSH).
A survey of men in gay venues in London, Brighton, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh found that 40% of men who tested positive for HIV thought they were HIV negative.
