The latest data from PHE suggests that as a result of treatment, 87% of all people living with HIV in Britain had an undetectable viral load.
One reason for the persistent HIV epidemic in Europe is that late diagnosis remains a challenge across the whole Region.
In the East, there are 51.1 new HIV cases in 100,000 people, which is far more than the 6.4 new diagnoses for the same number of people in the West. The 19,000 new HIV infections among people aged 15-24 in 2017 was only about 9 per cent smaller than the 2010 figure, as opposed to other regions where reductions up to 25 per cent have been observed. The earlier the condition is diagnosed, the more successful treatment is likely to be, so it is very important to get tested if you think there's a chance that you might have contracted HIV.
The minister said that the government is committed to make honest efforts for increasing the access to and uptake of HIV preventive and treatment services by engaging with all stakeholders to promote HIV awareness and minimize stigma and discrimination against HIV.

The Report covered Region consists of 53 countries, where altogether nearly 900 million people live.

Among the types of data the CDC collects: the number and population rates of HIV diagnoses, the number of people living with HIV and the number of people receiving HIV medical care.
"It's hard to talk about good news in the face of another year of unacceptably high numbers of people infected with HIV".
HIV prevention methods in the United Kingdom include: condom provision, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), expanded HIV testing and prompt initiation of antiretroviral therapy after diagnosis. It is estimated that the majority of onward transmission is from those with undiagnosed HIV.
During 2017, of the 84 new cases diagnosed in Northern Ireland, 45 (54%) occurred through MSM transmission, while 26 (31%) occurred through heterosexual transmission.
"The increasing trend in new HIV diagnoses continued for the Region overall, despite decreasing rates of new diagnoses in the EU/EEA", the executive summary posted on the ECPCD website reads.
