"HIV in this country is no longer the death sentence it once was....tombs of the 1980s", he said.

"I wanted to be able to stand here in this place and say to those who are living with HIV that their status does not define them", said Russell-Moyle, who has been an MP since 2017. I know the whole Labour Party is proud of him. It also serves as a gateway for those at higher risk of acquiring the virus to access the recommended package of prevention services in order to remain negative.

The Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) is calling on people to get tested as an important step towards halting the spread of HIV and ending AIDS.

"But we must remain vigilant against prejudice, and we must fight for everyone to have access to effective treatment".

"My name. might appear in tomorrow's newspapers as a result of course of being the first MP to declare themselves HIV positive in this chamber", he said. "This World Aids Day I will be proud to wear the red ribbon in solidarity and respect".

A British member of parliament was being praised after disclosing in the House of Commons that he is HIV positive.

"This was a couple of years before I eventually made a decision to speak out about it".

"'I can absolutely promise you that when I am, I will come to the Sunday Times to do it but it is against the editorial code that you reveal someone's health details without their consent, and I'd much rather you didn't'".

In a function on World AIDS Day in New Delhi today, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Anupriya Patel said, the government is leaving no stone unturned to achieve the target of making India AIDS-free by 2030.

He told the Press Association: "A few months ago I was giving out awards, congratulating people who have spoken out about their HIV status, saying how fearless they were, and there was a feeling in the back of my mind saying, "Well, if I'm congratulating people, I also need to be so courageous to do that".
