This chapter reviews the United Kingdom's response to its HIV epidemic. Even with a relatively small HIV epidemic, which is being fuelled by ongoing transmission by people living in the UK and some coming from endemic areas, and a stable socio-political and economic position, the UK's National Health Service (NHS) is experiencing some problems meeting increased costs for HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support.
