HIV in Europe 2016 - 2017

HIV in Europe 2016 - 2017


HIV in Europe (HiE) is a pan-European initiative which started in Brussels in 2007. The initiative provides a European platform for exchange and activities to improve early diagnosis and care of HIV patients across Europe. Directed by an extensive and independent group of experts with representation from civil society, policy makers, health professionals and European public health institutions, the initiative is truly a multi-disciplinary and pan-European collaboration.

Projects during 2016 include the fourth European Testing Week, the continuation of OptTEST, a part EU-commissioned HIV project to increase awareness of early HIV testing and optimal treatment benefits among health professionals, policymakers, and the European HIV Community. Further, the evaluation of the ECDC HIV testing guidance has continued into 2016, and new projects in 2016 include the HIV and hepatitis resource centre. The objective of the online resource centre is to create and maintain an online body of resources that will inform the public health and public policy dimensions of HIV and HCV testing and linkage to care.

Also funded with this year's money is the HepHIV Conference 2017 in Malta, from January 31-February 2, 2017

HIV in Europe is an initiative formed to inform policy-making/implementation, knowledge sharing, and to improve the evidence base on important issues related to earlier HIV testing and care. It is unique in its collaboration between stakeholders from both clinical, advocacy and public health policy levels, who all share the common objective of ensuring that people living with HIV (PLHIV) enter care earlier in the course of their infection.


Everyone living with HIV worldwide receives treatment
