Under its leading title of the FPA 2018 - 2021, Stronger Together, AIDS Action Europe (AAE) will implement its work programme in 2018. As a comprehensive NGO network of 415 NGOs, national networks, AIDS service organisations, and community based groups in 47 countries in the WHO European Region, AAE is a unique player with substantial added value for European policy making and programme implementation in the response to HIV/AIDS, TB and hepatitis.
Considering the epidemiological background of the three diseases and after consulting AAE Members and partners, the following six core thematic areas were identified to focus on in the upcoming four years:
Community based voluntary counselling and testing (CBVCT)
Affordability and accessibility to medicines
Tackling legal barriers in the response to HIV, TB and hepatitis
Criminalisation of HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission
Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)
Tackling stigma and discrimination
The three main objectives of the work are
1.AAE contributes effectively to the HIV, TB and hepatitis response in Europe
2.AAE provides platforms to communicate and facilitate collaboration, networking, and linking and learning
3.Continuous improvement of network collaboration through governance and internal management.
Within Objective I, AAE will serve as the secretariat to the EU CSF, monitor and contribute to policy developments, coordinate the European HIV Legal Forum, and advocate for CS concerns. Objective 2 comprises improved bilingual communication and exchange, intensified social media communication, dissemination of 3rd health programme information and tools, support of national and regional affordability advocacy efforts and provision of capacity building activities. Eventually, objective III includes ensuring topic-related sub-network cooperation, overall governance by the AAE Steering Committee and implementation, monitoring, evaluation, follow-up and fundraising for the work programme.
Start date: 01/01/2018 - End date: 31/12/2018

3. Continuous improvement of network collaboration through governance and internal management.
As a comprehensive NGO network of 421 NGOs, national networks, AIDS service organisations, and community based groups in 47 countries in the WHO European Region, AAE will implement its work programme, i.e. with regard to Objective I, to serve as the secretariat to the EU CSF, to monitor and contribute to policy developments, to coordinate the European HIV Legal Forum, and advocate for CS concerns. Objective 2 comprises improved bilingual communication and exchange, intensified social media communication, dissemination of 3rd health programme information and tools, support of national and regional affordability advocacy efforts and provision of capacity building activities.

Against the epidemiogical background and evidence that was described in the FPA2018 – 2021, in 2020, AIDS Action Europe (AAE) will continue the work under the three objectives

2. AAE provides platforms to communicate and facilitate collaboration, networking, and linking and learning

- Sexual and reproductive health and rights
- Tackling stigma and discrimination

The application for the SGA 2021 is written in times when due to the SARS CoV-2 - Coronavirus the planning of activities for the next year is extremely difficult. AAE will implement the activities planned in the FPA for 2021 as much as possible, taking into consideration risk-mitigation scenarios in case that restrictions entail the adaptation of activities, for instance by conducting meetings online rather than face-to-face or other format changes. There are indications that, even if the Corona-Virus situation is improving, it will have a profound impact on collaboration, communication and content of international work in the field of HIV, viral hepatitis and TB. This application reflects also cross-sectional acivities when the expertise from the HIV, TB and viral hepatitis field for instance in tackling discrimination and stigma, criminalisation or affordability can be transferred to the Coronavirus situation.
Start date: 01/01/2021 - End date: 31/12/2021

“Stronger together” is the title of this proposal of AIDS Action Europe (AAE), a network of 415 NGOs, national networks, AIDS service organisations, and community based groups in 47 countries in the WHO European Region. The motto reflects the objective of AAE to join efforts, not only within the network but also with other stakeholders and partners in the response to HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis. In April 2017, the AAE Steering Committee decided to change its mission statement: The integrative approach, addressing not only HIV/AIDS but also tuberculosis and viral hepatitis as mono-infections, echoes the decision to use synergies and avoid duplications wherever and whenever possible. This applies in particular for key populations who are especially affected by and vulnerable to the three epidemics.
But “Stronger together” also stands for maintaining and improving collaboration and communication between partners in the 3rd Health programme in the field of HIV/AIDS, TB and viral hepatitis as well as for ensuring sustainability of materials and deliverables developed within the programme.
Considering the epidemiological background of the three diseases and AAE’s mission, vision and strategy and after consulting AAE Members and partners, the following six core thematic areas were identified to focus on in the upcoming four years:
- Community based voluntary counselling and testing (CBVCT)
- Affordability and accessibility to medicines
- Tackling legal barriers in the response to HIV, TB and hepatitis
- Criminalisation of HIV non-disclosure, exposure and transmission
- Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)
- Tackling stigma and discrimination
The three main objectives of the work are
- advocacy to strengthen Civil Society’s response to the three epidemics,
- providing platforms to communicate and facilitate collaboration, networking, and linking and learning
- and continuous improvement of network collaboration.
