This 2005 annual surveillance report for the United Kingdom (UK) describes a worrying situation with undiminished and high levels of transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among men who have sex with men (MSM), a steady increase in the number of HIV-infected black Africans in the UK, limited but compelling evidence that heterosexual transmission of HIV within the UK is slowly rising, and continuing high transmission of other STIs, especially chlamydia among young people. The report summarises current surveillance information on HIV and STIs, as well as some of the behaviours underlying transmission, and shows the distribution of the problem across different areas of the country.
