Alliance for Public Health and the European AIDS Treatment Group are pleased to invite you to online Webinar “U = U = U and I can do more! – An exploration of what we can do more to get the message across”, which will take place on Zoom, 18th February 2022 at 1 p.m.- 2:30 p.m. CET.
In line with EATG’s aim to work on guidelines for healthcare service providers and to address stigma and discrimination, EATG signed on to the 2016 Undetectable=Untransmittable (U=U) consensus statement launched by the Prevention Access Campaign. This states that a person on fully suppressive HIV treatment cannot transmit HIV. However, there remain inconsistencies in the knowledge and understanding of U=U in non-HIV related care. In order to overcome the lack of knowledge and promote awareness and a better understanding of U=U, EATG conducted a mapping initiative that aimed to collect and report on U=U awareness-raising initiatives in HIV care services/ settings in four EECA countries: Belarus, Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation and Ukraine.
This webinar will start with a PechaKucha-style overview of the U=U background, followed by the presentation of the mapping report conducted by EATG on U=U awareness-raising initiatives in HIV and non-HIV care settings from 4 EECA countries. In the second part of the webinar, different actors will be invited to share examples and experiences of good practices from Russia, Ukraine and Italy. A final discussion will be held to reflect upon current trends and focus on what can be done in the future for a better promotion and development of the U=U agenda.
