The eastern part of the WHO European Region has the fastest growing HIV epidemic in the world, with the number of people living with HIV estimated to have tripled since 2000. Progress in the western part of the Region shows what can be achieved, though much more is still needed. The overall objective of the European Action Plan for HIV/AIDS 2012–2015 is clear: to ensure zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths in the Region.

The primary audience for the European Action Plan for HIV/AIDS is the national authorities in the Region responsible for HIV diagnosis, prevention, treatment, care and support, including health ministries and other government bodies responsible for health. The Action Plan is also intended for national authorities and ministries other than those directly responsible for health, including finance, education, social welfare, child protection, transportation, infrastructure, criminal justice, labour, immigration, development, defence, and foreign affairs, as well as associations, professional bodies, researchers, academics, civil society, advocacy groups, trade unions, the private sector, and international and global partners, including bilateral and multilateral donors.
