Policy Working Group

In 2013, the EACS constituted a Policy working group whose aims were to collect and disseminate information on standard of care, including progress and pitfalls in different European regions, and to provide a platform to share this information among different stakeholders. 

The EACS Policy Working Group organized the first standard of care meeting in 2014 following the EACS Governing Board’s decision to organize a biennial meeting on Standard of Care for HIV and Co-infections in Europe. The Policy Working Group came to the conclusion that it was essential for EACS to focus on standard of care as a specific topic, related to its main activity and to also take into consideration stakeholders active in the field, such as WHO, HIV in Europe, ECDC and EATG.

Objectives and strategies

  • To elaborate a standard of care document which defines benchmarks for different areas of care and treatment according to Guidelines. 
  • To organize a meeting aimed at identifying indicators to allow a periodic monitoring of their progress in access to testing, access to care, cascade of care and prevention, diagnosis and management of co-morbidities, with a particular attention to the infectious ones.
  • To identify beforehand key parameters which could be brought forward before the Standard of Care for HIV and Co-infections meeting 2016.
  • To discuss with institutional stakeholders: EU commission, ECDC, WHO, UNAIDS, and HIV in Europe.
  • To involve actively individuals living with HIV and Community representatives, such as EATG.
