A survey of Africans in England has found that targeted HIV prevention services are needed to improve people's confidence and skills to avoid passing on or getting HIV.

The survey of more than 4,000 African people revealed that one in five were unaware that effective treatment for HIV exists and more than a third did not know these treatments work better the earlier they are taken. Those questioned also widely believed that having HIV could be a reason for deportation from the UK.
