Continuum of HIV care - Monitoring implementation of the Dublin Declaration - 2018 progress report
This report focuses on data findings on the continuum of HIV care submitted by countries in Europe and Central Asia for the 2018 round of reporting on implementation of the Dublin Declaration on Partnership to Fight HIV & AIDS in Europe and Central Asia.
In 2018, 52 of the 55 countries in Europe and Central Asia completed the Dublin Declaration survey, and 34 provided data on all four stages of the continuum (compared to 29 countries in 2016). A total of 42 countries were able to provide data for at least two stages of the continuum of HIV care (compared to 41 in 2016). There were also improvements in the number of countries able to provide data for key populations; in 2018, nine countries reported all four stages for MSM, seven countries for people who inject drugs (PWIDs) and five countries for migrants. This compares to six, seven and two for 2016, respectively. The increasing availability of continuum data is important, as it means that more countries can assess the effectiveness of their HIV response, monitor progress towards the global 90-90-90 targets and identify areas that require greater attention, particularly the significant health inequalities faced by certain key population groups.
