Event description

Description

Ahead of the Scottish Parliamentary elections, HIV Scotland is delighted to host a cross-party hustings event focusing on issues important to people living with and at risk of HIV, including stigma, the availability of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis and welfare.

The evening will feature a panel consisting of representatives from Conservatives, Greens, Labour, Liberal Democrats and the SNP. This will be an opportunity to hear from those standing for Holyrood on the policies they would adopt to ensure that Scotland becomes a global leader in curbing future transmissions of HIV. With 1,000 people living with HIV in Scotland and unaware of their status, there has never been a more important time to raise the importance of HIV within public health policy.

Prior to the hustings, HIV Scotland will publish our election manifesto, outlining the key areas we believe the next Scottish Government should prioritise.

The panel will feature contribitions from:


• Dan Farthing-Sykes – Scottish Liberal Democrats candidate for Linlithgow and regional candidate for Lothian.
• Martin Laidlaw Scottish Conservatives candidate for Kirkcadly.
• Jim Eadie MSP – Scottish National Party candidate for Edinburgh Southern.
• Neil Findlay MSP – Scottish Labour regional candidate for Lothian.
• Zara Kitson – Scottish Greens regional candidate for Glasgow.
