Rapid Assessment on Access to PrEP in EU/EEA Countries

by AIDS Action Europe

The efforts to expand the use of PrEP face challenges worldwide. As such, the
UNAIDS target of 3 million people having access to PrEP by 2020 globally, was not4
met. In Europe, there were 68 089 oral PrEP initiations in 2020.5 According to the
European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), "Greater access to PrEP
and progress in PrEP implementation is needed to reach the SDG of ending the AIDS
epidemic by 2030. To achieve this progress, it would be helpful for countries to gain
a better understanding of the barriers within their country to implementing PrEP
programmes. ”

From August to October 2022, AAE invited its member organisations and partners
based in one of the EU Member States to submit their responses on various
aspects of availability, accessibility, affordability, and acceptability (AAAA) of PrEP
in their national context.

This current report is based on the information provided in the survey and
reflects the practical knowledge on the issue of community-based and –led
service organisations that work with key populations. It includes besides the
main findings of the assessment, country profiles, as well as recommendations
for the European Union and its Member States for urgent steps to be taken to
ensure universal, free and low-threshold access to PrEP.
