EACS supports European HIV testing week

Why is a European HIV testing week needed?
Targeted at populations which are most at risk of HIV, as well as healthcare professionals who should be offering the HIV test, European testing week aims to increase awareness around the importance of HIV testing to decrease the proportion of undiagnosed people living with HIV and reduce late diagnosis. The rationale for testing week came about following input and advice from representatives of HIV organisations across Europe. The group agreed that a pan-European week would be an effective approach to help scale up access to, availability, offering and uptake of HIV testing for risk populations, as well as provide a platform for disseminating a united message.

The Europeans AIDS Clinical Society fully supports the involvement of organisations and clinics across Europe. Click here for further information.
