How has life with HIV changed?

Around 100,000 people in the UK are thought to live with HIV and every year about 6,000 new cases are diagnosed.

Medical advances in treatment means that an HIV diagnosis in 2016 is very different to one at the height of the epidemic in the 1980s.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme introduced George, who's 22 and has only just been diagnosed, to Edwin, who's 54 and was diagnosed 30 years ago.
