Day 15 Feb 27 2013

I had a morning meeting in Borough Market with Ben from International HIV Partnerships. He told me, unbelievably, that the highest prevalence of HIV in Europe is in Lambeth and Southwark in London. There was an article in the Lancet recently, which revealed that in 2011 there was a record high 3010 new cases of HIV reported in the UK among men who have sex with men (MSM). What has been happening since the tip of the iceberg and tombstone campaigns of the 80s?

We are working on an MSM campaign so it’s important to meet people like Ben who’ve been working in the field since the 80s.

He also told me about San Francisco in the 80s and the 300 HIV charities that existed in SF alone. It must have been mayhem. We are the only national hep C charity but with the instance of hep C among MSM rising, more HIV charities are looking at hep c too. We need to cultivate one voice and a strong message.

All morning I was surprised at how normal I felt. A headache and muscle aches started creeping up after lunch. I thought I’d walk my headache off by skipping the tube and walking to Waterloo from London Bridge but by the time I got there I wanted to drop. It was nice seeing the sun though after days of grey.

Today's pic is the tube posters outside Southwark tube on my walk home.

Hi Gemma, I am fine thanks, I seem to have settled into my routine of taking my Riba each day and my Interferon jab each week. I cannot complain, I do feel tired and my skin is still troublesome but I am managing to work and get through my days quite well.
It would be nice to hear how Nick got on, I used to follow his blog each week and having followed his journey for so long it would be good to hear what the conclusion was.
Keep up the good work.

I was wondering the same thing John.....The blogs stopped once Nick finished the treatment, and it would be brill to find out how he is doing!
Your blogs are very informative Gemma...I was reading Lesleys info the other day, and was interested to hear how she is/was raising awareness with GP's. My personal experience is that this is vital in raising awareness of Hep C.
