Labour's Lloyd Russell-Moyle became the first MP to disclose he is living with the virus in the chamber as he led an adjournment debate on HIV and World Aids Day.

By 2020, it is hoped that 90 percent of persons will know their HIV status, 90 percent on antiretroviral drugs and 90 percent of people living with the condition would have viral suppression in subjecting the HIV and AIDS disease under control and avoid spread.

He said 95 percent of the number are now on treatment through donor agencies and the U.S. government; adding that the Nigerian government was treating additional 60,000 people in Abia and Taraba states.

"We will also facilitate the integration of vulnerable members of the HIV community into our poverty alleviation and social intervention programmes", he said.

Crystal Palace batter Burnley, finally win at home
Palace earned their first home win of the season following a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park on Saturday. The home side then took the lead, deservedly, but it came rather fortuitously.

Deputy President David Mabuza has told the official World Aids Day commemoration that the voice of young people has been missing from the important conversation around HIV and Aids for far too long.

Russell-Moyle made a point in explaining how being HIV-undetectable means he is not able to transmit the virus. "The childhood so many of us take for granted".

He commended the United States government, Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Global Fund, PEPFAR, various donor agencies as well as nongovernmental organisations in the fight to end the epidemic. You can not rely on symptoms to know whether you have HIV.

In an interview with the Press Association, Mr Russell-Moyle discussed ending HIV transmissions.

BT excludes Huawei from 5G network, to remove 4G equipment
BT pledged to avoid doing so despite working closely with Huawei since 2005, the FT noted. As a result, Huawei have not been included in vendor selection for our 5G core.

On the stigma surrounding HIV, Mr Russell-Moyle added: "Of course there are low level elements of stigma in every day life, in terms of just lack of knowledge, people reacting with guttural reaction". So that does a lot to normalise HIV in the public's mind.

Total Control of the Epidemic, Humana People to Peoples HIV & AIDS programme, is centered on the idea that “Only the people can liberate themselves from AIDS the epidemic.” Since 2000, TCE have reached over 20 million people across 12 countries in Africa and Asia, connecting them with the information, services and support they need to live healthy and positive lives.

In Mozambique, Index Case Tracking has seen 38,612 sexual partners tested for HIV of whom 13,154 tested HIV positive in the year 2017.

He added: "In some ways I'm incredibly lucky, I'm a white gay man in a very liberal open city, and so out of all of the groups of people I will probably fair one of the better".
