Men still not getting tested enough despite gays and bisexuals top of transmission rates

The National AIDS Trust (NAT) is calling for new HIV testing ideas, saying high risk groups should have to ‘opt-out’ of HIV testing.

In a new report launched today (8 May), the NAT have outlined the steps to reduce late HIV testing in the UK.

NAT wish to shift the emphasis, saying there should be an assumption that a sexually active gay man should have a regular HIV test rather than seeking it out from a STD clinic.
