Ending HIV Transmission in Scotland by 2030 - elimination delivery plan 2023-2026: equality impact assessment

This publication outlines the equality impact assessment carried out in relation to the Ending HIV Transmission in Scotland by 2030: HIV Transmission Elimination Delivery Plan 2023 to 2026.

Stage 4: Decision making and monitoring

  • Identifying and establishing any required mitigating action

If, following the impact analysis, you think you have identified any unlawful discrimination – direct or indirect - you must consider and set out what action will be undertaken to mitigate the negative impact. You will need to consult your legal team in SGLD at this point if you have not already done so.

  • Have positive or negative impacts been identified for any of the equality groups?

Positive impacts

  • Is the policy directly or indirectly discriminatory under the Equality Act 2010[16]?


  • If the policy is indirectly discriminatory, how is it justified under the relevant legislation?


  • If not justified, what mitigating action will be undertaken?


  • Describing how Equality Impact analysis has shaped the policy making process

No significant changes were deemed necessary / appropriate as a result of this assessment. However, the process helped us to see that we had undertaken adequate consultation and considered the different protected characteristics and the needs of each group. It helped us to confirm the HIV Transmission Elimination Delivery Plan wasn’t being discriminatory in any context.

  • Monitoring and Review

We will be cognisant of developments which might result in a requirement to adapt the content.
