This is what you get when I've been to a THT induction day...

Poll #331100 HIV in the UK

If HIV tests you could do at home were available in the UK, would you...

Use them to have your first test
25(35.7%)
Use them to have another test rather than use a GUM clinic again
9(12.9%)
Use them to test someone else
1(1.4%)
Not use them
21(30.0%)
Think they should remain illegal
1(1.4%)

The number of presumed male-male HIV transmissions in the UK has been more or less constant since the late 80s. Is this a success or a failure for health promotion for gay and bisexual men?

Success, it would have been higher without
19(27.1%)
Failure, it should have dropped
21(30.0%)
Dunno / both / other
30(42.9%)

It's reckoned that there were just over 50,000 people living with HIV in the UK at the end of 2003. What is THT expecting to be the figure at the end of 2008?

If someone who is HIV+ has sex with someone who is HIV- and infects them, should they be guilty of a criminal offence?

Yes, if they lied and said they were not HIV+
40(57.1%)
Yes, if they didn't do anything to stop it, like use condoms
16(22.9%)
Yes, even if they did
1(1.4%)
No
7(10.0%)
Dunno / other

Which is the leading general sexual health organisation in the UK today?
