Simon Kirby was the highest scoring MP in the Terrence Higgins Trust Party Conference Quiz on HIV awareness.


Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven, met with Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) representatives at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester last week.

THT had been quizzing Members of Parliament at each of the parties’ conferences to test their knowledge of HIV and sexual health, keeping a leader board of the most successful MPs.

Simon Kirby MP scored 8 out of 9 correct answers, becoming the highest scoring MP from all the parties.

Mr Kirby said: “Having been the Vice Chair of the HIV/AIDS All Party Parliamentary Group I have long taken an interest in HIV/AIDS related issues and the importance of raising awareness of these. I am very pleased to have been the highest scoring MP but the quiz highlights the need for the great work that Terrence Higgins Trust does to raise awareness of HIV.”
