MP startles parliament, reveals he is HIV positive

Seven new HIV cases reported this year

He added: "Those who have HIV or who have recently been diagnosed should know that they are free to pursue every aspect of public life without hindrance".

Lloyd Russell-Moyle, from the opposition Labour Party, said he wanted to "say to those living with HIV that your status does not define you".

"Again, I emphasize that with early detection of HIV and proper treatment and care, people can live long and healthy lives, but we should not forget the importance of prevention as well", the minister said.

Ms Patel also said that the health ministry is focusing more on eliminating mother to child transmission of HIV by 2020.

"We are anxious about treatment not being available as regular as it should".

He said he had chose to speak out to help others to seek treatment, fight the stigma surrounding the disease, and because this Saturday marked the 30th anniversary of World AIDS day.

Reaching more people with HIV

The MP is believed to be the first to come out as HIV-positive on the floor of the House of Commons.

A British member of parliament was being praised after disclosing in the House of Commons that he is HIV positive. "You walk out feeling totally numb, with a million things going through your mind, and at the same time a sense of absolute nothingness".

"This was a couple of years before I eventually made a decision to speak out about it". "No person diagnosed with HIV today should feel any less able to thrive and enjoy life than anyone else due to their status".

Said Russell-Moyle of World AIDS Day: "Such events are also deeply personal to me".

This represents a 17 percent year-on-year decrease, highlighting successes from the World AIDS Day efforts.

In addition, the Cayman Islands Red Cross continues its work in the community and schools, offering education on sex, sexuality, HIV testing and counseling, as well as condom distribution.
