The EU HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis Civil Society Forum is calling for membership for the term 2020-2022. Since its creation in 2005, the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV/AIDS and since 2017, the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis (hereafter CSF), has been instrumental in providing and sharing critical information and evidence; in undertaking joint actions and; creating synergies between its members. These activities have advanced policies and interventions improving the health and well-being of communities that are most affected by HIV, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis.
Until 2019, the CSF was hosted at the EC DG Sante Directorate, which selected members, financed and facilitated bi-annual face-to-face meetings. In September 2019, the European Commission decided to close down the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis.
In autumn 2019, after receiving feedback from CSF members and observers on the value-added of the EU Civil Society Forum on HIV, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis, the CSF coordination team decided to re-launch the group, with an updated structure, operating mode and agenda to advance policies improving the health and well-being of the communities that its members serve. It will continue to work closely with the European Commission. Not-for-profit organisations that are based in the WHO European region and whose main activities are related to the prevention, outreach and awareness raising, health support services, community services and/or other similar activities aimed at reducing the transmission or improving the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS, viral hepatitis (B and/or C) and/or tuberculosis are called to apply.
