Scotland urged to eliminate new HIV transmissions by 2030

26 March 2019 – BBC News

A new strategy by HIV Scotland is aiming to reach zero new transmissions by 2030.

Scotland was the first part of the UK to make the drug PrEP available on the NHS. This drug is taken by people who are HIV-negative and has been shown to reduce the risk of infection by about 86%.

HIV Scotland says PrEP and other advances mean Scotland is now at a point where new HIV transmission is preventable.
