LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

European HIV testing week 2014

The second European HIV testing week is kicking off today, and will end on the 28 November 2014. ILGA-Europe is proud to once again support the initiative.

The HIV testing week offers an opportunity for partners across Europe to unite for one week to help more people become aware of their HIV status. More than 470 organisations took part last year and thousands more people are now aware of their HIV status.

The ultimate goal of the European HIV testing week 2014 is to make more people aware of their HIV status and reduce late diagnosis by communicating the benefits of HIV testing. “Talk HIV. Test HIV.” remains the focus for this year’s testing week, to support dialogue between all partners in order to encourage at risk individuals to ask for an HIV test and for more HIV tests to be offered to those at risk.
