The European HIV testing week is supported by a number of international and pan-European organisations and institutions - including UNAIDS and the European Commission
"People have the right to know their HIV status. It is essential that new approaches are generated to enable and empower people to access HIV testing without fear of stigma, discrimination or criminalisation. Community driven initiatives such as the European HIV testing week are an important contribution to ensuring that more people know their status and can access lifesaving treatment. It is an important contribution to Treatment 2015, UNAIDS’ initiative to rapidly expand access to treatment." said Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
