HIV Scotland is the HIV charity of Scotland. We’re an involvement organisation at heart, amplifying the voices and experiences of people living with and affected by HIV to affect change through policy, research, campaigning and advocacy. Our vision is for Scotland eliminate new transmissions of HIV – and to do that we need to end HIV-related deaths and HIV-related stigma. Did you know that someone living with HIV, on medication that works so effectively it reduces the level of HIV to such levels it becomes undetectable, can’t pass it on to their sexual partners?

The Breastfeeding Network supports women, families and communities with evidence-based information and practical peer support to give children the best start in life. Our vision is that women are supported in their infant feeding choices and that they are able to breastfeed for as long as they choose. Central to our work is promoting the mental and physical wellbeing of mothers and babies and encouraging families to access help when needed. We increase community knowledge of breastfeeding to help remove barriers and build understanding of its importance. We meet these aims by listening to families, respecting and supporting their choices.
