Joint Statement: Key Populations and European HIV Hepatitis Testing Week 2017

European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week

17 – 24 November 2017

Safe, voluntary testing for key and most affected populations

A joint statement from key population networks,

regional networks, HIV and Hepatitis organisations

We applaud European HIV–Hepatitis Testing Week’s (ETW) continuing efforts to:

  1. Ensure effective, comprehensive, rights-based, safe, anonymous and voluntary HIV-Hepatitis testing is available and accessible for everyone, and
  2. Promote early diagnosis and linkage to care, and increase awareness of the barriers faced by key and most affected populations seeking/accessing HIV and hepatitis testing and treatment.

We recognise that ETW 2017 marks a significant step up in advocacy and action to challenge existing barriers to safe voluntary testing, both real and perceived, and to truly ensure nobody is left behind.

Building on this unique opportunity, we are pleased to stand in solidarity with others representing or working with our peer-led country or regional networks, and with HIV/Hepatitis organisations to promote this vital testing campaign.
