An estimated 77,400 people were living with HIV in the UK in 2007 with 28 per cent unaware of their infection, according to Health Protection Agency figures. This compares with a previous estimation of 73,000 for 2006.

The HPA says that almost a third of individuals are being diagnosed with HIV late, at a point after which therapy should have begun, and are missing out on the benefits of early diagnosis.
