Scotland's World AIDS Day

Get the facts. Challenge Stigma. Play your part. Together we can get Scotland to Zero new HIV infections by 2030.

You might think that World AIDS Day in Scotland is one for the history books, but it’s not.

This global campaign, marked every year on 1 December, offers us the opportunity to keep alive the memory of loved ones lost, while shining a light on Waverley Care's work and the progress Scotland has made as we enter a defining decade for HIV. 

What progress has Scotland made?
So, why should I care about WAD?
How does stigma affect real people?

OK, so how can I help?

Our work is only possible with your support. By making a regular or one-off donation, you can help us to continue being there for people living with HIV, and to work towards a Scotland where new HIV infections are a thing of the past.

You can also help us by raising awareness. The best way for us to shift the conversation away from '80s stereotypes of HIV is to educate people about how HIV has changed. 

Find out more below about HIV testing, treatment and prevention below, and share that information with your friends, families and colleagues. You can also join us at a series of online events where we'll be hearing from people on the frontline of Scotland's HIV response.

Thank you...
