map of Europe"Organisations of people living with HIV are a key driving force in the AIDS response, and with appropriate support individuals living with HIV can take a central role in their own country, region, or locality in the direction and delivery of AIDS programmes. Their participation gives a personal power and immediacy to AIDS efforts that drives and inspires others into action.

This quote comes from the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS website.


HIV Europe is a network of organisations demonstrably committed to the principle of the Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV and AIDS in the development of public policy and the delivery of services.

HIV Europe was founded in Copenhagen at a meeting in June 2005. Read more about this under "about HIV Europe".
