The number of gay men being diagnosed with HIV has reached a record high in the UK, according to the Health Protection Agency (HPA). One in 20 gay men and men who occasionally have sex with men are HIV positive in the UK – and in London, the ratio is as high as one in 12. Part of the reason for the observed rise is increased testing, but, says the HPA, it is also clear that too many men are unaware that they have HIV and are unknowingly infecting others.
