The Spring European Hepatitis-HIV Testing Week pilot is from 18 – 25 May 2018.
This pilot serves as another opportunity during the year to promote testing and increase awareness of knowing one’s hepatitis/HIV status. Through this pilot, there will be a focus on integrated testing activities for hepatitis and HIV with the aim of creating a better understanding of how we can improve integrated testing and address barriers in implementation. This pilot will also allow ETW stakeholders to assess interest and the feasibility of having more than one Testing Week during the year.
This pilot aims to promote wide-scale testing and related awareness activities as a way to complement the November campaign.
The Spring European Hepatitis-HIV Testing Week pilot is not replacing the annual European Testing Week that occurs during the last week of November. The European Testing Week initiative will still carry out Testing Week in November (which is planned for 23-30 November 2018).
