Integrating testing for HIV and/or viral hepatitis and COVID-19

The webinar took place on Wednesday, 25 November 2020, 16:00-16:45 CET

COVID-19 has been called “the most acute global health crisis since HIV” overshadowing almost all other health agendas. We have witnessed a shift in health system resources to COVID-19, and lockdowns and restrictions have seriously affected access to testing for HIV and HCV.

Around the world, the communities most underserved by health systems have been among the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Often, these are the same groups that are disproportionally affected by HIV/viral hepatitis.

This free live webinar “Integrating testing for HIV and/or viral hepatitis and COVID-19” presents two case examples from the WHO European Region of how integrated testing with COVID-19 can be done, with presentations from the Danish NGO “Brugernes Akademi” (Users’ Academy) and Villa Maraini Foundation from Italy.
