European testing week

Testing week 2015 is taking place from 20-27 November 2015. Now in its third year, it offers partners across Europe the opportunity to unite for one week to help more people become aware of their HIV and HCV status. More than 709 organisations took part last year and thousands more people are now aware of their HIV status. We hope that testing week 2015 is an even greater success.

European 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).
