The mission of the Correlation Network (CN) is to reduce health inequalities and improve the quality of life of marginalized groups in Europe. CN is committed to vulnerable groups, e.g. drug users, sex workers, migrants, MSM and youth in risk situations, including people living with HIV/AIDS and other communicable diseases. CN aims to improve access to and quality of medical and social services in a social Europe, in which these groups have a safe place with the same rights as everyone else.

CN works with everyone involved in providing care to marginalized groups: health professionals, researchers, policy makers, activists and others. CN works closely with various affected communities. We believe in meaningful involvement of marginalised groups in the design and implementation of services, and in decision-making processes.

CN is convinced that exchange of expertise and cooperation at the European level will benefit (health) professionals and communities at the national level.

Communication between network members and other stakeholders will take place face-to-face (e.g. at conferences) and through web-based media.

Correlation Network is committed to a number of guiding principles and core values:
- Vulnerable and marginalised communities are involved in a meaningful way in design and implementation of activities and in decision making processes.
- Activities of the network are based on European exchange and cross-border cooperation, creating synergy and added value for all parties involved.
- Activities of the network involve stakeholders from different professional backgrounds, representing various areas of research, practice and policy.
- Activities of the network are based on general principles of public health and human rights.
- Activities of the network ensure a pragmatic and evidence-based approach, respecting the diversities of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or lifestyle of target populations.
- Activities carried out by the network are evaluated regularly and systematically, monitoring the network`s objectives, results, cost-effectiveness and ethical implications.

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 unite civil society to work towards a more effective response to the HIV epidemic in Europe and Central Asia. We strive for better protection of human rights and universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support. We work towards a reduction of health inequalities focussing on most at risk populations and the epidemic in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
We envision a world where people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS can enjoy life free from stigma, discrimination, and persecution, and have universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support.
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, in our promotion leaflet, work plans and annual reports, among others.

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.

It is a unique player with substantial added value for European policy making and programme implementation.The leading principle of AIDS Action Europe’s multiannual Framework Partnership Agreement 2015 – 2017 is continuity and innovation. The programme described in this proposal will follow up on achievements since the start of AAE in 2004 and will extend its agenda with activities aimed at optimising the EU’s response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and strengthening the AAE network. In the area of policy, AAE will keep its focus on the coordination of the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV/AIDS and on contributing to the EU Think Tank, so that the voices of AAE members and other members of civil society are heard.In the field of linking and learning, AAE will continue investing in its Clearinghouse, as a database for exchanging good practice and sharing information.

Its contents will be re-structured to intensify linking and learning. Furthermore, it will be transformed into an interactive platform for information and opinion exchange.- The AAE website will be re-designed in order to improve information distribution troughout the region.- The bilingual communication efforts will be intensified to reach member organisations in Russian speaking countries more effectively.- Consultancies, working groups and project development meetings will provide opportunities to address emerging issues at country, regional and European level and to stimulate European cooperation.
