European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week
There is an urgent need to change strategies for testing for HIV and hepatitis in Europe. Far too many are unaware of their infection and late diagnosis is common, meaning higher mortality rates, greater risk of onward transmission and increased financial costs. For the first time organisations and institutions across Europe are uniting during European Testing Week (20-27 November) to put focus on the need to increase testing for these two conditions, HIV and hepatitis, recognising the overlap both between challenges with testing and patient groups.
