Letter from our Chair

This is our plan for Scotland. 

We believe that by bringing together the right partners, working with a common goal, we can achieve zero new infections, zero HIV-related stigma and discrimination and zero HIV-related deaths by 2030. These three key targets form the basis of our Strategic Plan – everything that we do will work towards achieving these important goals. 

Over the last few years, we've built our expertise as a trusted source of high-quality policy work, making recommendations to Government and Health Boards based on the views and experiences of people living with and at risk of HIV. This new phase of the organisation will focus on providing creative solutions to overcome sexual and drug related barriers to a healthier Scotland.

Our five pillars, outlined in this Strategic Plan, are the solid foundations for which our work will be developed. Over the next three years, we'll be working with everyone to bring about the right solutions to end the HIV epidemic in Scotland and share our experiences internationally to contribute on the global stage. These foundations, our 25 years' experience, and our creative solutions will help to achieve the best outcomes for a healthier Scotland. 

Together, we can get to zero and ensure that Scotland is a healthier place regardless of HIV status. So let's get to work, and get to zero.
