Just drawing attention to this twitter from the APPG HIV/AIDS

APPG_HIV_AIDS: Bad news. NAT has just spotted a government doc announcing the end of ring fence for AIDS Support Grant in 2011. http://tinyurl.com/34v8b6h

We are also advised that the allowance for 2010/2011 AIDS support grant is 25.5million pounds.

Our concern is that the SOHPID figures suggest about 67,000 people are living with HIV, yet the HPA figures suggest this number is about 87,000 according to the number of registered people with HIV less the number of death's.
