The main objectives of the HIV in Europe Copenhagen Conference 2012 are to:

  1. Provide an overview of European innovative initiatives and best practices on optimal testing and earlier care - how to bring people to testing?
  2. Sustain and fuel the political discussion of the WHO EURO testing guidelines (2010), ECDC testing guidelines (2010)and ECDC-EMCDDA Guidance "Prevention and control of infections among people who inject drugs"(2011),the EU Communication on HIV/AIDS and EP Resolution adopted 1 Dec 2011 and their implementation at national levels
  3. Accompany the debate at EU HIV/AIDS Civil Society Forum and Think Tank level on HIV testing
  4. Provide opportunities for multi-stakeholder dialogue to develop creative solutions to unresolved challenges in research and implementation of HIV policies and programmes to improve early diagnosis and care of HIV across Europe - which people are prevented from testing and treatment, which measures are needed to overcome theses problems, which are the incentives for policy makers and people undiagnosed to become more active?
  5. Discuss and take forward the strategy for implementation of changes based on the concrete outcomes of the projects and initiative.
  6. Inform leaders, including key policy makers and donors, as to increase their commitment to ensure that HIV infected patients enter care earlier in the course of their infection than is currently the case.
  7. Increase public awareness of the public health problems associated with late presentation for HIV care.
  8. Present data available on temporal trends of late presenters and the undiagnosed population and data on the cost-effectiveness of HIV testing demonstrating how scaling up HIV testing can contribute to more sustainable health systems.
  9. Discuss HIV testing and linkage to care and testing among key populations and the role of new HIV testing diagnostic technologies.
