Although HIV incidence is increasing in the wider European region as a whole, there are large differences in epidemiology between Western, Central and Eastern Europe. Likewise, while some countries within the region have been successful in meeting and surpassing the 90-90-90 targets, others are facing huge challenges and lagging behind. Success in meeting the 90-90-90 targets necessitates a coordinated response across community, public health and clinical sectors. The objective of this satellite symposium would be to identify facilitators and barriers to achieving the targets, and promoting collaboration between countries at the opposite spectrum of the HIV response as well as between public health, clinical and community sectors in addressing these barriers.
