The European Testing Week will take place 22-29 November 2019! This year, the theme of the November 2019 European Testing Week emphasises the importance of integrated testing of HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and sexually transmitted infections (when possible), as well as other related activities focused on increased awareness and access to testing and treatment, highlighting the importance of ETW’s longstanding tagline of Test.Treat.Prevent.
It is not a requirement to engage in integrated activities for #EuroTestWeek, however, ETW encourages all participants to use the week to create more awareness about the importance of testing for more than one condition (when possible). ETW recognises that legislative, financial and structural barriers may prohibit ETW participants in engaging in activities for other conditions, especially for conducting testing. However, ETW encourages the network to recognise the importance of integration and consider developing ways, big and small, to further inform target audiences about the importance of prevention, testing and treatment for HIV, viral hepatitis and STIs.
