Details for European HIV Testing Week, 22 to 29 November
Posted on: November 1 2013, 08:53 pm

Dear All,
Here are details for the European HIV Testing Week. http://www.hivtestingweek.eu/
Join 300+ European organisations and sign on.
The ultimate goal of the European HIV testing week is to make more people aware of their HIV status and reduce late diagnosis by communicating the benefits of HIV testing. The focus for this first testing week is Talk HIV. Test HIV. It has been introduced to support dialogue between all partners in order to encourage at risk individuals to ask for an HIV test and for more HIV tests to be offered to those at risk.
This is to:
Encourage people who could have been at risk of HIV to get a test
Encourage healthcare professionals to offer an HIV test as part of routine care in specific settings and conditions (in line with present European guidelines)
Support and unite community organisations to scale-up HIV testing and share lessons learned between countries
Make more policy makers aware of the socioeconomic benefits of HIV testing initiatives and how to evaluate HIV testing practices.
