European countries’ performance on the global 90-90-90 goals for diagnosis, treatment and viral suppression is uneven, resulting in diverging trends of HIV incidence across the region. This lecture will present the latest epidemiological data on HIV for the European region, overall and by key population, and provide examples of evidence-based programmes and policies that are associated with better performance on reducing the number of people living with undiagnosed HIV, the number of diagnosed individuals who are untreated, and the number of treated individuals who are not virally supressed. While the differences in epidemiology of HIV and health systems across Europe necessitate context‐specific strategies to strengthen and control HIV prevention and care efforts, many good practices from the region can be replicated and lead to accelerated progress to reduce HIV incidence in the region.
