In your article Medecins sans frontieres?, you suggested HIV is a notifiable disease, when it isn't, and implied that HIV treatment is exempt from charging, but it is not, writes Vicky Field
It went on to cover this last point correctly, but I thought it was worth clarification.
The Terrence Higgins Trust has campaigned for several years to have these regulations changed, on public health, economic and human rights grounds. We are keenly awaiting the publication of the Department of Health/Home Office review and hope HIV will be included in an updated list of exemptions from secondary care charging.
