Presentation synopsis:

Combination prevention – The overview of what is being done in Europe

No single intervention is capable of preventing transmission of HIV in every person in every setting. Needs, skills and available options vary across and within the European countries. Advances over the last 10 or more years provide considerable optimism through approaches such as PrEP, the UNAIDS 90-90-90 target, focussing attention on treatment as prevention, and arguably an increased role for people living with HIV in conversations about HIV prevention. This presentation will provide an overview of current strategies for combination prevention in Europe, considering structural, behavioural and biomedical interventions. Wherever possible, evidence for effectiveness will be used to highlight best practice and/or evidence gaps.
