Under its leading motto for the Framework Partnership Agreement, continuity and innovation, AIDS Action Europe (AAE) will maintain to work in 2017. As a comprehensive NGO network in the field of HIV/AIDS with over 400 network members and partners AAE is a unique player with substantial added value for European policy making and programme implementation. Based on the problem analysis and the activities implemented in 2015 and 2016, AAE will focus on tackling following core problem areas in 2017:
Advocacy for a new policy framework
Advocacy for European issues at the international level
Upscaling access to prevention for gay men and other MSM
Improved access to HIV services for all those whose access is limited due to their residency status
Affordability of medicines and access to treatment
Community based voluntary counselling and testing (CBVCT) outside medical settings
and tackling stigma and discrimination
Within Objective I, AAE will ensure that Civil Society’s voices are being heard and key populations’ needs are addressed by organising the EU HIV/AIDS CSF, contributing to the Think Tank, contributing to key European events and participating in the UNAIDS PCB. Furthermore AAE will continue its activities regarding undocumented migrants, affordability of medicines, promoting CBVCT and upscaling access to prevention for gay men and other MSM. Tackling stigma and discrimination is a core task for AAE and is reflected as a cross sectional theme in all our activities. AAE will advocate for the rights of key populations and contribute to fairer, inequality reducing societies. Under Objective II communication and collaboration, facilitate linking and learning between members and partners are at focus with a recently re-launched and re-designed AAE Clearinghouse and website as well as through our social media presence. Objective III will ensure overall governance, the functioning of the network and the implementation of the annual work programme.

Strengthening the capacity and capability of civil society to drive the TB response in Europe [TBEC_2021]

TB Europe Coalition (TBEC) is the only regional civil society network working exclusively on TB in the WHO Europe region and, with 220 members in 35 WHO Europe countries, is uniquely positioned to increase the political will amongst decision-makers and strengthen necessary capabilities amongst its members to end the TB epidemic across the region. Despite being preventable and curable, TB is the biggest infectious disease killer in the world, with the WHO Europe region being home of 18 high-priorities countries, including the numerous EU Member States. Although global leaders have committed to ending the epidemic by 2030, including reiterating their commitment at the UN High-Level Meeting on TB, the current slow rate of progress means that this will not be achieved for another 100 years at least. It is essential that civil society pushes national governments to ensure that the political commitments expressed at international and regional fora result in necessary and visible changes at the country level. TBEC has identified health system financing, quality people-centred care and TB R&D and access to existing tools as the key thematic priorities in the region. TBEC has identified four key objectives for 2020 work plan: 1) well functioning and accountable TBEC governance mechanisms; 2) comprehensive communication and outreach activities, aimed at greater membership participation and collaboration; 3) strong partnerships with key decision-makers and relevant civil society networks, working in TBEC priority areas; 4) capacity building activities via exchange visits, country workshops, mentoring programme and webinars. TBEC's objectives are directly relevant to the four 3rd Health Programme Objectives, DG SANTE and CHAFEA. The foreseen activities will further increase the EU's existing public health knowledge on TB, advance coordinated efforts to fight DR-TB and TB-HIV co-infection, reducing the financial burden.
