Stichting Aids Fonds - STOP AIDS NOW! - Soa Aids Nederland (SANL) is host organisation of the network AIDS Action Europe (AAE). SANL is a national organisation that aims to prevent sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, and improve the quality of STI control in the Netherlands. The operating grant is requested for the core work programme of AAE.
AAE’s mission is to bring together civil society to work towards a more effective response to the HIV epidemic in Europe and Central Asia. We strive for the best standards of human rights protection and universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support. We aim to reduce health inequalities focusing on most at risk populations and the epidemic in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
We envision a world where people living with, affected by and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS enjoy life free from stigma, discrimination and persecution, and have access to prevention, treatment, care and support equally across Europe and Central Asia.
AAE`s policy, advocacy and linking and learning work is shaped by a set of core values: be accountable and hold others accountable; be transparent; be inclusive; put in practice the GIPA principle (greater involvement of people living with HIV); work from a human rights based approach; facilitate a networking and partnership culture; be cost-effective; and make a difference.
Our mission is communicated through our website, social media, in our promotion leaflet, work plans and annual reports, among others.
The AAE Steering Committee recently started a strategic discussion which resulted in an adapted and more focused mission and strategic objectives. Throughout 2013 the SC will work on an adapted strategic plan for the coming period.

The overall purpose of the project is to generate operational knowledge to better understand the role and impact of Community Based Voluntary Counselling and Testing services (CBVCTs) across Europe, as well as to study the use of innovative strategies based on new technologies and social networks, to increase early HIV/STI diagnosis and treatment among the most vulnerable groups.
Six specific Objectives have been defined: 1)To monitor and evaluate CBVCT services in Europe; 2) To identify determinants for HIV test seeking behaviour and sexual risk behaviour among MSM in Europe; 3) To describe and improve approaches of linkage to health services for HIV/STI among MSM in Europe; 4) To improve the implementation of CBVCT services specifically addressed to MSM in Europe; 5) To describe HIV testing patterns and identify barriers to testing and care among migrant populations in Europe; 6) To assess acceptability and feasibility of innovative strategies and interventions aimed at increasing HIV counselling and testing.
