Spring European Testing Week: 17-24 May 2019

European Testing Week is an European campaign that encourages partner organisations—in community, health care and policy institutions-- throughout Europe to unite for one week to increase testing efforts and promote awareness on the benefits of earlier hepatitis and HIV testing. This initiative has progressed since its start in 2013 and has grown to be a widely recognised European event with hundreds of organisations participating every year. Each organisation volunteers their own time to organise their Testing Week activities and create incredible displays of a united effort to increase testing awareness at all organisational levels.

Now in its seventh year, the European Testing Week initiative will hold its second Spring European Testing Week! 

The first pilot for #SpringTestingWeek was conducted in May 2018 in collaboration with the European Liver Patients' Association and the Integrate Joint Action with great success, therefore, there will be a second Spring Testing Week from 17-24 May 2019! 

The aim of the Spring and Autumn ETWs remain the same: to unite partner organisations throughout Europe for one week to increase access to testing and promote awareness on the benefits of earlier hepatitis and HIV testing.
