The Positive Persons' Forum is an annual one-day event for people living with HIV in Scotland. It provides a platform for people to connect with each other, hear the latest on topics relevant to them, and to identify shared concerns, issues and priorities for change.


This year's programme includes:

A conference address by Maureen Watt, MSP, Minister for Public Health
An update on treatment and cure developments
Project 100 and Peer Support across Scotland
Update on the Stigma Index Research for Scotland
What people living with HIV want to see from the new Scottish Parliament post the Scottish Elections in May 2016

Why you need to be there:

The Forum brings people with HIV in Scotland together to set the agenda for change in Scotland on HIV issues and to hear from experts about issues ranging from rights to the search for a cure. The aim is for those attending to meet and inspire one another, and to unite the voice of people living with HIV in Scotland so it's heard right across the country by decision makers and service providers.

It's a free event for everyone living with HIV. Do come along and listen, share your experiences and views, and help identify what must change in Scotland to make sure the needs of people living with HIV are met.

Each year a Positive Persons' Manifesto is published which captures the thoughts, dicsussions and calls for change from those people attending the conference. You can see this year's Manifesto here.
