Italy and Sweden
With the aim of focusing European thought-leadership on delivering impact at country level, HIV Outcomes ‘road-tested’ the recommendations in Italy and Sweden in 2018 to identify which recommendations could make a significant difference in each country and to identify ways to overcome any barriers to their adoption. Learnings from work in Italy and Sweden, and examples of good practices in long-term HIV are from these two countries, were the subject of a report presented in the European parliament in November 2018.
Good practices from Italy and Sweden are complemented by other country-level examples in the HIV Outcomes Compendium of Good Practices.
Germany, Romania and Spain
In 2019, HIV Outcomes is building additional national advocacy platforms in Germany, Romania and Spain to tailor the HIV Outcomes recommendations for local implementation in a similar exercise to the one undertaken in Italy and Sweden. This will allow HIV Outcomes to engage with policy makers and clinicals in these countries on changes needed to address long-term health outcomes and quality of life of people living with HIV.
