Project Period
2016-2018

Summary
In 2016, ECDC commissioned an update to the ECDC guidance on HIV testing: increasing uptake and effectiveness in the European Union published in December 2010 which HIV in Europe was contracted to do. The aim of the update was to develop an evidence-based public health guidance to provide EU/EEA countries with an evidence-based framework to support the further development of integrated national HBV, HCV, and HIV testing policies in the EU/EEA. The integrated guidance will be published in late 2018.
