Everyone living with HIV has a different story and set of experiences.
We have begun interviewing volunteers, asking them about their lives with HIV so we can share them here and raise awareness about the challenges they face, and what life with HIV in Scotland is really like.
We’ll keep adding to the stories here, so please do read some of the stories – they may give some different perspectives and viewpoints.
