This week’s activity

European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week stands with an alliance of NGOs to support the effort to encourage safer and voluntary testing among key and most affected populations.

"We recognise that ETW 2017 marks a significant step up in advocacy and action to challenge existing barriers to safe voluntary testing, both real and perceived, and to truly ensure nobody is left behind. Building on this unique opportunity, we are pleased to stand in solidarity with others representing or working with our peer-led country or regional networks, and with HIV/Hepatitis organisations to promote this vital testing campaign.”
