Labour Party commits to fertility equality for all HIV-positive people

Reading now: 274

The Labour Party has announced plans to ensure that people living with HIV have equal access to fertility treatments. Current legislation prevents many HIV-positive people from accessing the services they need in order to have children, as they remain banned from donating their eggs or sperm to someone who is not viewed as their partner by law – inadvertently ruling out the possibility of surrogacy.

However, heterosexual couples remain able to access fertility treatment regardless of HIV status if they are using their own gametes.

Medical treatment for the virus has come so far that most people living with it in the UK have undetectable levels of it and cannot pass it on.
