The first PrEP in Europe Summit will take place in Amsterdam on Friday to Saturday 9-10 February, 2018. This will be the first community-focused conference on HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to happen in the European region. The Summit will bring together health and public health commissioners and policy directors, researchers and clinicians, and PrEP users and advocates. It aims to help build a more united and more equal approach to providing PrEP within the WHO European region, with all its diverse health systems, populations and levels of prosperity.
The programme is online and accessible at www.prepineurope.org. The summit will be live-streamed, you can watch the summit proceedings at the PrEP in Europe Facebook page. You will be able to interact with the live stream with comments and questions.
The aims of the Summit are:
- To understand what barriers remain to implementing PrEP in Europe;
- To discuss how key stakeholders – healthcare professionals, healthcare providers, and community advocates – can collaborate in speeding up implementation of PrEP in Europe;
- To share good examples of how countries in Europe have moved toward PrEP implementation.
