Gaps in HIV prevention expose Europe to risk of outbreaks

The EMCDDA warns that new HIV infections related to the injection of drugs – including stimulants – have been reported in many countries, particularly in Eastern Europe. Of particular concern is the fact that many of the injecting-related cases in Europe are detected too late. Special attention should be given to providing these often hard-to-reach groups of drug users with adequate prevention messages, early diagnosis and treatment referral and to scaling up effective integrated harm reduction measures.

Tyler Curry - Rejected: The Struggles of Dating With HIV

You are going to be rejected. It is true, and it is going to happen eventually. Someone is going to shut you down before they get to know you because you are living with HIV.

Looking to a New Era for Women's HIV Prevention: Zeda Rosenberg

Zeda Rosenberg, Chief Executive Offiver of the International Partnership for Microbicides, says: "While there is much progress to celebrate in HIV treatment and prevention, protecting women remains a major challenge. AIDS is the number-one killer of women ages 15 to 44 worldwide. Women are biologically more vulnerable to infection and face deep-rooted gender inequities that increase their risk. In sub-Saharan Africa, where the epidemic has taken the greatest toll, young women are at least twice as likely to contract HIV as young men."

Hong Kong's new HIV cases hit record high with 195 people diagnosed in Q3

A total of 195 new HIV cases were reported Hong Kong in the third quarter of the year, the highest number ever in a single quarter, Hong Kong's Centre for Health Protection said yesterday, while a separate survey found that the infection rate among gay men had risen almost two percentage points. More than 85 per cent of new HIV cases were in men, most aged from 20 to 29. HIV prevalence in gay men has risen from 4.1% to 5.9% - a 44% increase in a single year - though this new estimate may partly be due to more people coming forward to be tested.

Greece: new HIV cases fall in 2013 due to halving of infections in injecting drug users

Health authorities in Greece say the number of HIV infections fell in 2013 for the first time since the start of the financial crisis. In its annual report issued Tuesday, Greece's Center for Disease Control and Prevention said the number of new infections nationwide fell by 20%, from 920 last year from 1,188 in 2012. This is largely due to a 52% decline in infections in people who inject drugs after a sharp spike in infections in 2012.
