Waverley Care: developing HIV services that are inclusive, responsive and accurately meet the needs of Africans in Scotland

Martha Baillie
Deputy Chief Executive, Waverley Care

Waverley Care was originally established as a Scottish charity in 1989 to provide care and support to people living with HIV. In 2003 the charity changed its constitution in order to work with people who are living with other blood-borne viruses (BBVs). We now have 70 staff delivering prevention and support services to a diverse client base including people from an IVDU background, gay and bisexual men, and people from sub-Saharan Africa across 10 Scottish health board areas. Our vision is that everyone living with HIV or hepatitis C should receive the highest standards of care and support to enable them to lead healthy, independent and fulfilling lives free from stigma and prejudice. Read more. . .
