Further to Silvia's email, here's some info from EATG:

Dear all,

Please find attached the HIV PreP manifesto signed by 81 European NGOs and concerned actors which has just been published.

We decided to wait until the publication of the results of the PROUD and IPERGAY studies. Thank you for your patience and your support in reaching out to colleagues at national level. This will be followed up upon!

Also, EATG and AIDES issued a press release (French, English, Spanish and German): -  see attached or at; Feel free to adapt to local context if that is of use.

All the best, Ann Isabelle
