HIV costs, UK:
The number of people living with HIV (PLHIV) continues to increase in the UK. A new study estimated the annual population cost of providing HIV services in the UK between 1997–2006 and projected them to 2007–2013.
The average annual treatment costs were £32,322 in 2006 for those on quadruple-or-more ART. The number of PLHIV using NHS services tripled over 10 years to 52,083 in 2006 and is projected to increase to 78,370 by 2013.Costs including community care increased to an estimated £683 million in 2006 and are projected to exceed £1billion in 2013.
Population costs are expected to continue to increase due to PLHIV's longer survival on ART and the relative lack of success of HIV prevention programs.
My NOTE: Just think CBT, money, secundairy gains, power, and suddenly a XMRV cover up looms BIG, wouldn't you say Mr Deer ?
