Austria 2006 - Presidency of the European Union



Since the late 1980s the HIV/AIDS epidemic has been a major concern and a high priority for the European Union. Cooperation between Member States has played an important part in containing earlier waves of the epidemic. The European Union has funded projects and established networks to link all the partners involved, accelerate the dissemination of best practice and address specific challenges faced by vulnerable groups. The European Union has also been active in developing countries and at global level. It provides 55 percent of the funding for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (GFATM).
