Purpose: the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis is a body supported by the European Commission to facilite the involvement of civil society in policy and programme making. It seeks to provide a platform for mutual learning and strategic thinking to improve policies and their implementation; to strengthen advocacy for the rights of key communities living or affected by these infections; to contribute to the empowerment of community groups.
