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
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.
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. 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.
Herewith we will continue focusing on the following six core thematic areas identified by our members and partners:
- Community based voluntary counselling and testing
- Affordability of 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
- Tackling stigma and discrimination

Start date: 01/01/2020 - End date: 31/12/2020

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.

Joint Action on integrating prevention, testing and linkage to care strategies acros HIV, viral hepatitis, TB and STIs in Europe (INTEGRATE) [INTEGRATE]

The “Joint Action on integrating prevention, testing and link to care strategies across HIV, Viral Hepatitis, TB & STIs in Europe” (INTEGRATE) has the overall objective to increase Integrated early diagnosis and linkage to prevention and care of HIV, viral hepatitis, TB and STIs in EU Member States by 2020.
A number of tools have been developed to reduce transmission, optimize early diagnosis and linkage to care for one or more of these four diseases. INTEGRATE will map relevant existing tools for cross-linking. A peer-review process will identify which of these tools are complimentary or redundant for other disease(s), and which could be adapted or require further innovation.
HIV, viral hepatitis, TB and STIs are cross-borders public health threats of concern to Europe that affect vulnerable populations disproportionately and require personalised interventions. As multiple dimensional approaches are required to reduce the public health burden, the most optimal profile of approaches that provide additive effects (and that are reasonably cost-effective) should be identified and implemented broadly.
INTEGRATE provides a platform to disseminate and exchange best practice among Member States and facilitate discussions on innovations and emerging issues within the four diseases. In this respect, INTEGRATE is a shared European effort that extends beyond the partners and can create important synergies across European stakeholders, projects and initiatives.
INTEGRATE supports the implementation of the Commission Communication on ‘Combating HIV/AIDS in the European Union and neighboring countries’ and the ‘Action Plan on HIV/AIDS in the EU and neighboring countries’ by ensuring better preparedness across the EU and by identifying innovative evidence-based testing and prevention tools to reduce new cases of HIV, viral hepatitis, TB and STIs in priority groups.

The Joint Action proposal on “HIV and Co-infection Prevention and Harm Reduction” (HA-REACT) addresses existing gaps in the prevention of HIV and other co-infections (especially tuberculosis and hepatitis) in priority areas of the EU. Despite huge advances in treatment and care and successful implementation of evidence-based preventive interventions in many EU member states, these infections are still not controlled among certain population groups and regions. The HA-REACT Joint action (JA) directly addresses the Communication from the Commission [COM(2009)569] on “Combating HIV/AIDS in the European Union and neighbouring countries, 2009 -2013” and relevant actions laid out in the associated [SWD(2014)106] action plan extension 2014-2016. The project takes a practical rather than a theoretical or purely guiding approach. It will implement concerted, multi-country, and multi-actor actions, strengthening evidence-based practices in the focus countries, where the situation and needs are particularly challenging. Focused action for greater impact is the leading principle of this proposal. The HA-REACT will focus on pragmatic actions targeting the most vulnerable populations, i.e. people who inject drugs (PWID). The focus countries for the JA were selected according to an objective and transparent selection criteria, developed by the ECDC and the EMCDDA in which the countries were ranked according to their epidemic situation and coverage of preventive measures. In addition to work packages of Coordination, Dissemination and Evaluation, HA-REACT actions are organized into five core work packages: Testing and linkage to care, Scaling up harm reduction, Harm reduction and continuity of care in prisons, Integrated care, Sustainability and long-term funding.

AIDS Action Europe (AAE) is a comprehensive NGO network in the field of HIV/AIDS with over 440 network members and partners from all over Europe and Central Asia. It is a unique player with substantial added value for European policy making and programme implementation.The leading principle of AIDS Action Europe’s multiannual Framework Partnership Agreement 2015 – 2017 is continuity and innovation. The programme described in this proposal will follow up on achievements since the start of AAE in 2004 and will extend its agenda with activities aimed at optimising the EU’s response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and strengthening the AAE network. In the area of policy, AAE will keep its focus on the coordination of the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV/AIDS and on contributing to the EU Think Tank, so that the voices of AAE members and other members of civil society are heard.In the field of linking and learning, AAE will continue investing in its Clearinghouse, as a database for exchanging good practice and sharing information. Website, social media, newsletters and mailings will remain key means to disseminate news and information. AAE strives for innovation and is determined to improve communication, linking and learning, and exchange of good practice: - The Clearinghouse is of great value for AAE members and beyond; it will be re-launched in the coming project period. Its contents will be re-structured to intensify linking and learning. Furthermore, it will be transformed into an interactive platform for information and opinion exchange.- The AAE website will be re-designed in order to improve information distribution troughout the region.- The bilingual communication efforts will be intensified to reach member organisations in Russian speaking countries more effectively.- Consultancies, working groups and project development meetings will provide opportunities to address emerging issues at country, regional and European level and to stimulate European cooperation.
