Report released yesterday criticises HIV services in Britain

HIV services crumbling, says report - Guardian


"Services for people with HIV in Britain are crumbling through neglect and complacency in spite of the government's good record on helping developing countries deal with the condition, according to a report released yesterday.

Ten years after drugs were made available that will keep people alive, HIV does not have a high priority and funding disappears into the general NHS pot, says the report. Its survey of HIV service providers and commissioners concludes there is no national strategic vision.

The report, from a group of charities called the Aids Funders Forum, which includes the Elton John Aids Foundation and Crusaid, says the NHS is not putting in place the right services to deal with the changing face of the condition in the UK, and is failing to focus on keeping people well. There are no government targets on HIV prevention, social care or provision of information, it says, and it has disappeared from the political agenda and public consciousness."

Reducing salt/sodium intake to a minimum is a safe, cost-free, drug-free way of improving the body's immune response to infection and also raises energy levels.
