This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Scotland has pledged an extra £7 million ($10 million) over the next four years to tackle HIV, hepatitis C and other bloodborne viruses through increased blood testing and antenatal screening. The announcement coincides with the publication of a report by the HIV Health Promotion Strategy Review Group, which recommends, among other measures, that antenatal screening be routinely offered to all pregnant women. The new funding announced by health minister Susan Deacon is in addition to the £6.1 million per year currently provided by the Scottish Executive to fund HIV prevention.
