Founded in 1992, the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG) is a European network of nationally-based activists. As a European patient-led advocacy organisation, it has been at the forefront of the development of the civil society response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Europe. It represents and defends the treatment-related interests of people living with HIV and AIDS.
EATG is a voluntary organisation made up of over 100 members from over 35 different European countries. Our members are representatives of different communities affected by HIV/AIDS in Europe. Our activities focus on treatment activism and treatment advocacy.
In responding to HIV, the EATG also considers diseases frequently seen as co-infection in people with HIV, as well as other health issues that increase the risk of HIV.
The EATG’s primary geographic focus is the member states served by the World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Office for Europe. However, the EATG does consider opportunities to collaborate with and support similar efforts in other parts of the world.
1. To enable people with HIV or at risk of HIV infection and their supporters to significantly influence the development, testing and approving of HIV treatments. In this context, HIV treatment means medical devices, products and diagnostic tests that prevent or treat HIV infection and include continuous improvement in the quality of life of people affected.
2. To advocate for the best practices of care and treatment.
3. To advocate for rapidly available existing and new HIV treatment.
4. To promote the access of the latest available information about treatment legislation for patients, health care providers as well as policy makers.
5. To influence changes in legislation and patent law in order to support the lowest achievable cost for HIV treatment, including the support for generic medicine.
6. To monitor the changes in Health care systems and policies to ensure the rights and the quality of services influence positively the quality of life of people living with HIV/AIDS.
EMA – Paediatric Committee
The main responsibility of the Paediatric Committee (PDCO) is to assess the content of paediatric investigation plans and adopt opinions on them including assessment of applications for full or partial waiver and applications for deferrals.
The EU HIV/AIDS Civil Society Forum has been established by the European Commission as an informal working group to facilitate the participation of non-governmental organizations, including those representing people living with HIV/AIDS in policy development and implementation and in information-exchange activities. The CSF includes about 40 organizations from all over Europe. AIDS Action Europe (AAE) and EATG co-chair and provide support to the work of the EU HIV/AIDS Civil Society Forum, an informal advisory body to the European Commission.
CHAARM (Combined Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Microbicides)
is a research network funded by the EC under FP7, it stands for Combined Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Microbicide. EATG is part of the working group for dissemination and advocacy activities, and has an appointed representative on the CHAARM Steering Committee.
The EATG’s role is to help identify target groups for dissemination of CHAARM activities and also to facilitate the organisation of 4 dedicated workshops focusing on CHAARM’s scientific activities and achievements starting from the second year of the project.
EuroCoord is a Network of Excellence established by several of the biggest HIV cohorts and collaborations within Europe - CASCADE, COHERE, EuroSIDA, and PENTA. EuroCoord has access to data from over 250,000 HIV-infected children and adults across the European continent and beyond. The multidisciplinary research undertaken by the network addresses key areas aimed at improving the management and life of HIV-infected individuals, whilst allowing differences within sub-groups to be explored.
EUPATI is an IMI-funded consortium project, led by the European Patients' Forum, to educate patients and the lay public about how medicines’ R&D works. A consortium of 29 organisations is developing training courses, educational toolkits and a web-based library to provide objective and credible information about medicines R&D and how patients can get involved. EUPATI will cover seven languages in 12 countries.
The main activity of work package 7 (WP7) was the preparation of a catalogue and a report on successful public private partnerships (PPPs) between patients’ organisations, industry and academia. The catalogue provides references and examples of successful collaborations that can be used as guidance for future partnerships, addressing the need for more active involvement of patient experts in medicines R&D.
ICAN conference: The iCAN conference was organized by the European AIDS Treatment Group in an effort to bring together community activists, representatives of patient-led groups and organizations, healthcare providers, representatives of local and national authorities from EU and neighboring countries to discuss the current trends in the HIV/AIDS response in Europe, summarize the best practices, including community-based approaches to combating the epidemic, and propose next steps.
EATG was very involved in Europrise (European Vaccines and Microbicides Enterprise - Network of Excellence (FP 6 project): 01/01/2007 – 30/06/2012), a Network of Excellence bringing together EU scientists from both microbicide and vaccine fields to embrace a coordinated approach to HIV-1 prevention research.
EATG is also involved in CHAARM, an EC funded research network that looks into developing combinations of new and existing microbicides that will be designed to be specifically targeted agents, which can be applied topically to reduce transmission of HIV during sexual intercourse.
EATG recently joined the EMERGE project (Evaluating mHealth technology in HIV to improve Empowerment and healthcare utilisation: Research and innovation to Generate Evidence for personalised care) where EATG will be acting as community partner, supporting standards for HIV care and guidelines for routine monitoring both in the involved countries and more broadly across the EU and potentially wider.
Think Tank on HIV brings together member state representatives, European Commission, WHO Europe, UNAIDS, ECDC, EMCCDA, UNODC
NEAT - European AIDS Treatment Network is a network of Excellence funded by the European Commission under the FP6 Programme. Its mission is to strengthen European HIV clinical research capacity. Nikos Dedes is the EATG project leader. The final version of the ECAB Review (which is funded by NEAT) has been published in June (see 3.5 The ECAB Review).
ECRAN – European Communication on Research Awareness Needs project is designed to develop a portfolio of open educational resources, including a film, for the general population about the challenges raised by independent clinical research. EATG is a non-leading partner in 4 work packages of the project: Creation of a multi-language website, Production of an animated film on clinical trials, planning and development of communication tools and materials.
We are a voluntary organisation with over 140 members from over 40 countries within Europe. The work of our volunteers counts for quite some FTE work as well.
