Statements from the European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week Working Group

The European Testing Week Working Group has released two statements supporting safer and voluntary testing for key and most affected populations for HIV and hepatitis.

The first is a statement to all of Testing Week signatories to review the joint statement (available in 6 different languages) created by an informal alliance of NGOs and ensure access to effective, comprehensive, rights-based, safe, anonymous and voluntary HIV and Hepatitis testing for everyone in order to promote early diagnosis and linkage to care.

The Working Group released a second statement that encourages government bodies and policy makers to review the joint statement and consider supporting the outlined principles in legislation.

European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week 2017 is taking place on 17-24 November.
