Halve It

Late diagnosis is associated with a greater risk of hospitalisation, AIDS-related illness, reduced life expectancy, increased risk for onward transmission and increased cost to the NHS. The Halve It coalition’s aims are to halve the number of people diagnosed late and to halve the number of undiagnosed people living with HIV.

Nursing women living with HIV in Europe

Back in September 2013, I attended my first European AIDS Clinical Society conference. One of the presentations that I found troubling was Stigma and Discrimination in Health Care Sector in Belarus. The presentation included grave results from the Belarus stigma index. It also included results from further studies and training for healthcare workers that the researchers had organised and carried out the previous year.

CPD article: HIV and women’s health

While antiretroviral therapy has transformed medical outcomes many challenges remain. Globally HIV/ AIDS is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among women aged 15–49 years. Women, including transgender women, may be particularly vulnerable to HIV infection for a host of reasons, including biological, economical, educational, political and social factors. In addition many women also encounter a range of gender specific challenges to HIV treatment and management of their sexual and reproductive health.
