HIV PrEP in the EU/EEA and the UK: Implementation, Standards & Monitoring, 2021
This guidance was developed to support EU/EEA countries in their efforts to curb the HIV epidemic and to harmonise the overall approach to PrEP implementation in the region. It has been developed through evidence synthesis, online stakeholder consultation with experts with community, clinical and/or public health or policy- making expertise and through ongoing engagement and involvement with an expert scientific panel, appointed by ECDC. This operational guidance document provides practical recommendations and key considerations to inform the development and implementation of PrEP programs at national and sub-national levels throughout the EU/EEA and provides an overview of key markers of readiness to deliver larger-scale PrEP programs. It also provides guidance on how to establish support from senior and community stakeholders and prioritise PrEP within national health agendas.
