London HIV prevention 'failing'
Charities have criticised the way HIV services in London are commissioned following the release of a report which highlights "significant management failings".
HIV treatment in London costs £247m per year, according to NHS London, with almost 30,000 people accessing care and that number rising by 5% annually.
But the new report says there is a "lack of strategy" and an "urgent need" to address HIV prevention in London.
Charities responded to these alarming findings in my BBC News article.
