Well done Nick Partridge

There are some extraordinary markers of social change which must not go unnoticed.  This New Years Honours list recognised the work of Nick Partridge, Chief Executive of Terence Higgins Trust with a knighthood.  This recognition is one of those markers.  However much we know still needs to be done to improve our cultural attitudes and approach to sex, sexuality and sexual health including contraception and HIV, Nick's well deserved knighthood reflects how much progress has been made in bringing sexual health and HIV into the mainstream.  I am delighted for Nick, for THT and for everyone working in sexual health.  It is truly brilliant.
