Veteran LGBT activist Peter Tatchell has said that the UK government is failing gay and bisexual men on HIV.
In a statement Mr Tatchell said;
"Quite clearly, the UK government’s HIV strategy is flawed. It is failing gay and bisexual men. Ministers have dropped the ball. They’re complacent.
Moreover, too many gay and bisexual are not taking HIV seriously and not getting regular check ups."
Mr Tatchell went on to say;
"We can’t carry on with the current rate of new gay and straight HIV infections. It’s straining the NHS during a period of austerity and, more importantly, turning too many people’s lives upside down."
