Action plan for the health sector response to HIV in the WHO European Region. DRAFT 5.4 (2016)




This Action plan is a continuation of the work began and the lessons learnt from the European Action Plan for HIV/AIDS 2012–2015. The goals and targets are supported by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the multisectoral strategy for 2016–2021 of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, the Global health sector strategy on HIV for the period 2016–2021, and Health 2020, the European policy framework for health and well-being.

The Action plan is structured around five strategic directions:

  • information for focused action;
  • interventions for impact;
  • delivering for equity; financing for sustainability; and
  • innovation for acceleration.
