Article: 53/2501

On 25 June 2019, Health Protection Scotland (HPS) published the current quarterly data on HIV diagnoses in Scotland. These data, reported by NHS laboratories in Scotland up to 31 March 2019, show the numbers of individuals not previously recorded as HIV-positive, and individuals previously diagnosed elsewhere, but now recorded in Scotland. The data are presented by year of report, NHS board, exposure category, likely area of exposure, and recency of infection (i.e. within the preceding three to four months). Data are also presented on the cohort of individuals diagnosed and living with HIV in Scotland at 31 March 2019.
