Please find here the agenda for the event.

The HIV Outcomes initiative is organising a meeting on World AIDS Day 2022 to raise awareness of measures to improve wellbeing for people living with HIV. It will also see the launch of the HIV Outcomes Policy Asks and Recommendations, the result of a year-long collaboration between over 60 experts and organisations with the ambition to guide policy actions at EU and Member State level.

HIV is a long-term condition and thanks to the widespread availability of antiretroviral therapy, life expectancy among people living with HIV is approaching that of the general population. Yet this does not always mean years spent in good health. People living with HIV are at higher risk of developing mental health conditions and continue to experience stigma and discrimination within health systems.
