In 2007, Scotland saw a 29% increase in the number of affirmative HIV test results. And contrary to misconceptions about the virus, heterosexuals are just as vulnerable to the risk - the figures revealed a rise in heterosexual infections. It is estimated 5,415 people live with HIV in Scotland.

The M-A-C AIDS Fund, the heart and soul of M-A-C Cosmetics, supports men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS globally with money raised via 100% of Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass sales. To date the M-A-C AIDS Fund has raised over US$115 million to help fight HIV and AIDS around the world. The money represents the sale, over the past 13 years, of more than 7.1 million Viva Glam lip products - of which 100% of the selling price has gone to the work of the Fund.
