23 April 2015 by Pure Radio

There have been massive improvements in HIV treatments and life expectancy over the past decade, yet there’s still no cure.

There have been 93 new diagnoses of HIV in Stockport residents in the five years from 2009.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest issues faced by HIV positive people is discrimination.

The UK Stigma Index survey aims to question people living with HIV, to find out their experiences of prejudice and how it has affected them.

Under the Rainbow spoke to one of the survey’s coordinators, Alastair Hudson.
