Overarching goal is the improved prevention, diagnostic and treatment of HIV/AIDS/STIs through bridging gaps in practice, policies and cross-border cooperation.
Specific objectives:
- To scale up the implementation of combination prevention through network cooperation on national, regional and cross-border level in CEE and SEE

-To scale up early diagnosis of HIV/STIs for most at risk groups based on human and gender rights
-To augment country-specific evidence on treatment of HIV and co-infections (TB, HCV), to enhance interlinks in referral systems and develop guidelines for management and treatment of HIV Co-infections
-To improve HIV/STIs community based prevention for ethnic minorities (e.g. ROMA) and migrant groups through capacity building in participatory prevention
-To enhance accountability and evidence-based evaluation in youth HIV/STIs prevention, sexual and reproductive health and rights programmes

European Workplace and Alcohol [EWA]

The development of effective methods of engaging with workplaces, and their workforces, to raise awareness and bring about organizational and individual change that lead to safer alcohol consumption, and thus a reduction in alcohol-related absenteeism, presenteeism and injuries. This will be achieved through the development and dissemination of a practical and robust cross-cultural tool-kit able to support the delivery of workplace-based interventions that will bring about safer alcohol consumption amongst the European workforce. The project will produce a report identifying best practice and recommendations for European, national, regional and local policy-makers. The project will improve the health and well-being of European citizens, contribute to the objectives of the Lisbon agenda, and enable workplaces to mitigate the potential negative consequences of the economic recession on alcohol-related harm.
