Action on HIV for a resilient Europe

Can a shift in policy halt the burden of this epidemic?

Tuesday, 28 September 2021 | 17:00-18:00 | Room 1

Organised by MSD

Forty years since the start of the HIV epidemic, significant progress has been made in controlling HIV. However, with increasing growth in transmission and a failure to sustain viral suppression in key populations, more remains to be done to meet the United Nation’s HIV / AIDS 2030 targets. Existing approaches are no longer sufficient and the burden on patients and health systems is growing.

In this session, we will discuss how it is now more important than ever for governments and policy makers to refocus efforts on HIV as part of their post COVID-19 strategies, to ensure health systems are set up to meet the evolving and unmet needs of people living with HIV, particularly in key populations where the need is increasing, and track progress with other countries across Europe.

Join us to discuss HIV as a model for future disease prevention efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals!
