EU – HIV/AIDS – civil society – surveillance – prevention – treatment - research
This communication builds on the principles and priorities set out in the Commission working paper “Coordinated and integrated approach to combat HIV/AIDS within the European Union and in its neighbourhood” and sets out the main lines for action until the end of 2009. A more detailed action plan for the present phase is included in the Annex. Many of these activities have to be completed with partners and require the close involvement of players within Member States. This document brings together the relevant EU policies and instruments available, which play a role in combating HIV/AIDS. Concerning external action, this Communication is fully consistent with and contributes to implementing the overall policy framework.
