Liz meets young constituent living with HIV

On 10 July I met a young constituent in Parliament who is living with HIV to discuss the importance of improving public awareness and treatment in the UK. It was really inspiring to talk to them about the challenges they had overcome and the action they are taking to change people’s attitudes around the world. I would urge people to take an HIV test at sites such as Leicestershire Aids Support Service, which offers a confidential and free service. I recently took an HIV test to support National HIV Testing Week.
