01st December 2016 - Every year on the 1st December people across the globe mark World AIDS Day: the international day to remember the 35 million people who have died worldwide from AIDS-related illnesses, to prevent new cases of HIV and to stand in solidarity with people living with the virus.
Jenny Marra MSP MSP said, “The rate of new HIV infections in Scotland has remained the same for the last ten years; on average one person every single day is diagnosed. This is despite new infections being entirely preventable. Encouraging communities at increased risk of HIV to access testing services can make a huge difference to the future HIV infection rates in Scotland.”
