Press & PR
We are always happy to work with the press to raise awareness about what it means to live with HIV in Scotland today.
The story of HIV today is vastly different from the past. Yet, the majority of the public hold outdated beliefs about HIV and those living with the condition. This is why it is so important for the stories of people living with HIV to be told to wider audiences through print, radio and TV media.
For World AIDS Day 2022, we worked with a variety of publications to tell the stories of people living with HIV and hepatitis C. We also assisted on several think pieces and opinion articles.
- World Aids Day: Ending the stigma and transmission of HIV, The Scotsman
- Glasgow man tells how HIV 'saved him' on World Aids Day, The Glasgow Times
- Working towards a world without HIV, The Herald
- Opinion: Hepatitis C is so stigmatised that I didn’t want to go on living, The Press and Journal
We are also always happy to provide comment on relevant political events and affairs relating to HIV, hepatitis C and sexual health. This World AIDS Day, our Policy and Campaigns Officer Anna Cowan spoke on BBC Radio Scotland about the newly-announced HIV transmission elimination plan from the Scottish Government.
