European Testing Week 22-29 November 2021

Make sure to sign up for the upcoming ETW on the ETW webpage to become part of ETW and support the efforts to increase access to testing and awareness of the benefits or early testing for HIV, viral hepatitis and STIs.  

You can participate in any way you want, as long as your activity supports these objectives.  We also encourage you to collaborate with local partners for joint ETW activities.

For inspiration on how to organize your ETW activities, check out our Testing week implementation handbook (Toolkit 2).

Theme statement: Catch up on testing!

As usual, the Working Group for ETW publishes a statement for ETW. This year, it emphasizes the urgent need to refocus the attention on HIV, viral hepatitis and STI priorities, after a long period of disruptions to testing services caused by the pandemic.

Read the full statement here.

European Test Finder

The European Test Finder is an important online tool enabling people across Europe to find their nearest testing site for HIV, viral hepatitis and STIs.

The previous test finder, hosted by NAM Aidsmap, will be discontinued and replaced by a brand new website for the European Test Finder, now hosted by the ETW secretariat.

Therefore, all testing sites need to register on and submit information about their testing services to be included in the new European Test Finder.
