    Aside from the obvious public duty of schools and families to educate, and aside from accidental exposure such as through blood transfusion, the means of avoiding HIV infection lie entirely in the hands of the individual. Once people have the essential information, spending more money won’t make them less likely to put themselves in harm’s way through risk taking behaviour.

  2. Hopefully Teresa O’Neill has observed the couple of articles there have been in the mainstream press over the course of the last year regarding the encouraging of absolutely-anything-goes behaviour in a number of London sex-on-site clubs and saunas. Hopefully she and her team will look into this and take appropriate action.

    I can’t remember his name, but a few months ago that ex-gay-finance chap who once ran for the mayoralty of London, exposed the fact that certain clubs in Vauxhall have an arrangement with nearby St. Thomas’s Hospital, so that the many men who end up in various forms of trouble while in the clubs due to drugs and drink can be given treatment at the hospital.

    Drugs and drink and the “anything-goes” behaviour can only fuel rising HIV infections.
