AVAC + EATG HIV Prevention Summit press release

AVAC and the European AIDS Treatment Group hosted the second European HIV Prevention Summit. Participants consisting of communities of people living with and at risk of HIV discussed the latest scientific and policy developments in the field of HIV prevention and formulated demands for researchers, medicine manufacturers and decision makers. The community urges concerted action and clear financial and political commitment if we want to achieve effective prevention of HIV/AIDS in Europe. Specifically, the Summit urges the accelerated approval and rollout of PrEP in countries across the region, following France’s recent example as the first and only in Europe to officially implement and fund PrEP programs for men and women at substantial risk of HIV.
