In 2019, AIDS Action Europe (AAE) will continue the work that is described under its leading title of the FPA 2018 - 2021, Stronger Together, and that is based on the achievements of the activities in 2018. imwill implement its work programme in 2018. As a comprehensive NGO network of 421 NGOs, national networks, AIDS service organisations, and community based groups in 47 countries in the WHO European Region, AAE is a unique player with substantial added value for European policy making and programme implementation in the response to HIV/AIDS, TB and hepatitis.
The three main objectives of the work are
1. AAE contributes effectively to the HIV, TB and hepatitis response in Europe
2. AAE provides platforms to communicate and facilitate collaboration, networking, and linking and learning
3. Continuous improvement of network collaboration through governance and internal management.
Considering the epidemiological background and evidence, AAE will continue with regard to Objective I, to serve as the secretariat to the EU CSF, to monitor and contribute to policy developments, to coordinate the European HIV Legal Forum, and advocate for CS concerns. Objective 2 comprises improved bilingual communication and exchange, intensified social media communication, dissemination of 3rd health programme information and tools, support of national and regional affordability advocacy efforts and provision of capacity building activities. Eventually, objective III includes ensuring topic-related sub-network cooperation, overall governance by the AAE Steering Committee and implementation, monitoring, evaluation, follow-up and fundraising for the work programme. Herewith we will continue focusing on the following six core thematic areas identified by our members and partners:
- CBVCT
- Affordability

A Plan for Action: Ensuring Equitable, Affordable and Responsibly Used Medicines in the European Union [SGA 2019 HAI]

Health Action International’s (HAI) 2019 European workplan builds on previous successes supported by CHAFEA. It provides a response to persistent shortcomings in European medicines policy and regulation. HAI’s workplan is aligned with the objectives of the Third Health Programme and with HAI’s organisational goals: (1) Access to Affordable Medicines, (2) Medicines Safety, Added Therapeutic Value and Responsible Use, (3) Democratisation of Medicines Policy. In 2019, HAI will continue to address factors affecting access to medicines, including Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) while campaigning to broaden public and policy support in the European Union for alternative models of biomedical innovation that prioritise unmet medical needs, contribute to medicines affordability and ensure public return on public investment. Through the ‘Our Medicines, Our Right’ Campaign, we will seek to broaden policy support to medicines price transparency and R&D costs, as well as needs driven R&D modelling. We will roll-out campaign activities in Germany and thereby build bridges between policy discussions at the EU and Member State level. HAI will, furthermore, implement initiatives to promote responsible use of medicines, including antibiotics, by healthcare professionals. As a member of the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Network Stakeholders Pool, HAI will contribute to the work programme of the network and advocate for strengthened EU collaboration on HTA. We will advocate specifically for joint HTA to be driven by high evaluation standards, transparency and independence from commercial interests. HAI will also seek policy and regulatory support for a more robust EU framework for medicines market authorization, in particular for cancer medicines. As a member of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) Patients’ and Consumers’ Working Party (PCWP), HAI will bring an independent consumers’ voice to EMA’s discussions and public consultations.

Saving lives by ending tobacco in Europe - from grassroots networking at EU countries level to the partnership with the Presidency of the Council of the EU [ENSP FY 2019]

Tobacco consumption is the major single cause for premature deaths in the European Union (EU). Special Eurobarometer 458/2017 indicates that over a quarter (26%) of European citizens are currently smoking, and an increase in consumption amongst young people aged 15-24 is observed since 2014 (from 24% to 29%). Smoking within the EU is estimated to cause 700.000 deaths annually, half of which are among 35–69-year-olds. As smoking is responsible for half the difference in deaths across socio-economic groups, tobacco control has a major role to play in reducing health and social inequalities.

ENSP plays a major role in the EU to prevent the tobacco industry from biasing and slowing down the tobacco control community effort. Key objectives for 2019:

O.1 - To assist and support the European Institutions with the complete implementation of tobacco control legislation, through the effective transposition and enforcement of the TPD (2014/40/EU) and the implementation of the WHO FCTC - through the provision of solid scientific evidence and awareness raising at the EU level.

O. 2 - To strengthen advocacy capacity at EU MS National level, and more particularly to empower Civil Society organisations, policy makers, academics, experts and all other relevant stakeholders through the provision of science-based evidence, increased health literacy, promotion of healthy lifestyle decisions, disease prevention and improving access to tobacco dependence treatment, through a wide range of channels and innovative tools.

O. 3 - To reduce health inequalities due to tobacco use at the micro level, through focusing on the 3rd Health Programme thematic priority areas and tobacco use, and through the engagement of youth in tobacco control activities.

O.4 - To enhance the sustainability of the actions performed through the Operating Grant so as to ensure the strategic long-term development and return on EU investment in the post Operating Grant period.
