Harm reduction in the context of chemsex: training manual

by AIDS Action Europe; Poulios, A.
Sexualised drug use, i.e. the use of any legal or illegal psychoactive substance before or during sex, is not new. In fact, substances have been used to enhance pleasure and overcome inhibitions in many cultures through the ages. Research from the last few decades has shown that sexualised drug use is more frequent among the LGBTQI+ community than other populations. This can partly be traced back…

Policy Paper on Access to PrEP in the EU/EEA Countries

by AIDS Action Europe
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) with oral antiretroviral medication is a highly effective and evidence-based HIV prevention method.  Despite its high clinical efficacy, efforts to expand the use of oral PrEP in EU/EEA countries have not fully realised its potential as part of combination prevention due to a variety of factors related to accessibility, affordability, and acceptability. The design…

Dangerous inequalities: World AIDS Day report 2022

by UNAIDS
This report, which marks World AIDS Day 2022, unpacks the impact that gender inequalities, inequalities faced by key populations, and inequalities between children and adults have had on the AIDS response. It is not inevitable, however, that these inequalities will slow progress towards ending AIDS. We know what works—with courage and cooperation, political leaders can tackle them.

Discrimination against People Living with HIV in Healthcare Settings

Tackling stigma and discrimination stands in the centre of all AAE’sactivities…
