HIV in the LGBT community: towards a Labour plan of action

Join LGBT Labour at this discussion in Parliament about the rising rate of HIV infection in the LGBT community, and debate what should Labour's plan of action be should it form the next Government. Figures released in November 2013 by Public Health England showed HIV infections among gay and bisexual men are at a record high, with 3,250 men diagnosed in 2012, the highest annual figure since the start of the epidemic. Yet budget cuts have taken place to HIV prevention budgets across the country.
We are pleased that Luciana Berger MP, Shadow Minister for Public Health will make her first appearance at a LGBT Labour event to discuss this important issue. She will be joined by Pamela Nash MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on HIV and AIDS, Lisa Power, Director of Policy at the Terrence Higgins Trust, and columnist from FS Magazine Kristian Johns. The discussion will be chaired by LGBT Labour's Co-Chair, Tom Burke.
