The status of the HIV response in the European Union/European Economic Area, 2016
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) monitors the implementation of the DublinDeclaration in Europe and Central Asia. This report incorporates data from countries in the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) reported to ECDC for Dublin Declaration monitoring in 2014 and 2016, 2015 HIV surveillance data reported to ECDC and WHO’s Regional Office for Europe, and country data reported in 2016 to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA).
In 2016, the focus of data collection for Dublin Declaration monitoring was prevention, testing and treatment for HIV, and this report is structured along the same lines. However, the report starts with a brief overview of the trends of HIV and AIDS diagnoses in the EU/EEA.
This report has been produced in connection with the HepHIV 2017 Conference: HIV and Viral Hepatitis: Challenges of Timely Testing and Care, which is being held in Malta, 31 January – 2 February 2017.
