World Bank, WHO, LSHTM launch study of HIV epidemics and vulnerability in Europe and Central Asia
Date:6/5/2013

The World Bank Group, World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe, and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine will release a new assessment of HIV epidemics and vulnerability in Europe and Central Asia, including a review of factors shaping HIV epidemics. The report presents a systematic analysis of the epidemic dynamics of HIV, vulnerability and response in 53 countries of the WHO European Region[1] plus Lichtenstein, focusing on key populations: people who inject drugs, sex workers and men who have sex with men.

The new findings and recommendations will be released on June 7 in London. The launch event will focus on policy priorities for the region, in light of the social and structural factors driving the HIV epidemic in Europe. It will be followed by a debate among high-level experts and policy makers on maintaining the momentum to prevent HIV.
