The HepHIV2019 conference is taking place under the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU. This Bucharest conference is the 6th conference focusing on earlier testing organised by the HIV in Europe initiative. This time the conference is jointly organised with the 3-year EU-funded joint action INTEGRATE (2018-2020).
The main objectives of the HepHIV 2019 conference are to:
- provide an overview of innovative initiatives and best practices on optimal testing and earlier care for HIV and viral hepatitis from different settings across Europe, including progress and challenges in the integration of services
- provide opportunities for multi-stakeholder dialogue to develop creative solutions to unresolved challenges in research and implementation, to improve early diagnosis and care
- sustain and fuel the political discussion of testing policies, increase political commitment and public awareness by discussing how to translate global and regional goals, objectives and targets into local implementation plans
