The MP added: "The disease is still deeply misunderstood". UNAIDS estimates that 9.4 million, or 25%, of people living with HIV do not know their status - a key barrier to scaling-up HIV treatment and reducing new HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths.

Mr Russell-Moyle revealed he had spoken to the now Lord Smith about his decision to make public his status.
"This was a couple of years before I eventually made a decision to speak out about it".
He added that it was Nelson Mandela's speech on HIV awareness that "tipped him over the edge" to eventually talk about it. In Namibia, the country has achieved success in fighting HIV and AIDS and attaining the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets.
