Transforming HIV responses in Europe

Focus on disruptive community actions

Wednesday, 2 October 2019 | 17.30-19.30 |

Organised by MSD and the European AIDS Treatment Group

Disruptive community action has been a cornerstone of public health responses to HIV. However, HIV infection rates need to fall faster in Europe if the SDGs are to be met and spikes in some countries require urgent attention. In parallel, long-term outcomes during chronic HIV treatment must be improved.

Combining national case studies, best practice examples, multi-sector panel debates and direct engagement with community activists, this workshop session will first ask, where and why are HIV responses in Europe failing? It will showcase how the HIV community is disrupting anew, for example in research, service delivery and care standards, to rejuvenate progress toward the SDGs. Lastly, it will ask how future EU-level policy should support multi-stakeholder action, and how learnings from HIV civil society can be applied in other fields.
