HIV and Aids
More people than ever before are living with HIV in Northern Ireland
On average 2 people per week are being newly diagnosed as HIV positive in Northern Ireland.
The WHO (World Health Organisation) confirm that 34 million people worldwide are living with HIV.
Early treatment, diagnosis and access to treatment is essential to limit the spread of HIV. One of the most important things we can do to prevent the spread of HIV and discrimination of those living with HIV is to find out some basic information about HIV.
How many people are living with HIV in the UK
