The project aims to promote cooperation between governmental and nongovernmental organisations in combating HIV/AIDS in the European Union and neighbouring countries.
The conference being organised is part of the action plan of the communication from the Commission on combating HIV/AIDS within the European Union and in neighbouring countries.
The project will organise a conference to create a forum where politicians and policymakers can meet with non-governmental and community-based organisations for exchange of expertise, experience and good practice and for building partnerships and networks.
Most of the results of the project are means to achieve the overall aim to combat the raising numbers of HIV/AIDS infections and to reduce the HIV/AIDS prevalence in all European countries.
Stronger cooperation between governments and consolidated actions between governments and civil society.
The exchange of experience and good practice shall lead to improved and well-targeted prevention programmes and a reduction of the obstacles at political level.
A conference declaration.
A background brochure/pre-conference booklet will inform about best practice projects in Europe.
