New Zealand sees drop in people diagnosed with HIV

The number of people diagnosed with HIV in New Zealand has significantly dropped, according to the AIDS Epidemiology Group of Otago University. It has been the first time the number has decreased since 2011. Last year, 197 people were diagnosed, a drop of 46 compared to 2016 when 243 people were diagnosed with HIV. Dr Sue McAllister said despite the drop being encouraging, it was too early to determine whether the decline would be maintained.

The Abbotsford man who was accused of having unprotected sex with multiple women and not disclosing his HIV-positive status said the charges should never have gone ahead in the first place. That’s because, under the law, he does not have to disclose the information if there is “no realistic possibility of transmission of HIV,” according to a BC Prosecution Service policy. Brian Carlisle said his medical records prove that his viral load has been undetectable dating back to 2004, but police ignored the evidence.
