The Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Framework 2011-15


Aug 2011 by Scottish Government
Sexual health and blood borne viruses continue to be of high priority for the Scottish Government. The Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Framework represents an ambitious vision for these key public health challenges, bringing them together for the very first time. The Framework is based on the foundations of existing policy, notably the Scottish sexual health strategy, Respect and Responsibility, and the Hepatitis C Action Plan. It continues their renewed focus on HIV, as signalled by the publication of the HIV Action Plan in 2009, and establishes a policy landscape in Scotland for hepatitis B. As we take this agenda forward, we intend to challenge inequalities; build on current achievements; and consider new priorities, new advances and new evidence.
