News from the AIDS Action Europe Network 
AAE launched its advocacy tool on
CBVCT

 
AIDS Action Europe launched its report and advocacy tool “CBVCT Services - Current obstacles and opportunities”. This study assembles the opinions and ideas of different stakeholders who provided very diverse points of view on the subject of Community Based Voluntary Counselling and Testing (CBVCT) services as they play different roles at the national and European levels and come from different countries. Their opinions and ideas, together with some extracts of the many documents produced on the subject of CBVCT services, were used as the basis to develop recommendations which serve as an advocacy tool for improving the actual situation both at the national and European level.

We cannot go on as if it was business
as usual

 
The situation in the Eastern European and Central Asian Countries remains dramatic. There is no curbing of the epidemic in sight. Extraordinary action in funding and policy change is necessary if the international goals have only a remote chance to be reached.
The official quintessence of the 6th Eastern Europe and Central Asia AIDS Conference taking place on April 18-20, 2018 in Moscow would probably sound different. But this is what it comes down to if you listen to the people working on the ground: There is no way that the 90-90-90 targets will be reached by 2020; leaving no one behind and zero discrimination are a lip service in this region more than in any other region of the world.
