Prince urges HIV testing for all in tribute to mother
PRINCE Harry has called on all people to “embrace regular testing” for HIV and Aids as he paid tribute to his late mother’s work in breaking down the stigma attached to the disease.
His comments came as he attended the Attitude awards last night, where Princess Diana was honoured 20 years after her death. In a heartfelt speech, Harry said he often wondered how she would be fighting HIV if she were still alive.
“I believe that she would be telling everyone across society, not just those most at risk, that with effective treatment being free and available in the UK, that we must all embrace regular testing — both for our own sake and for those that we love,” he said.
