Barring The Way To Health

Barring The Way To Health

To highlight legal and regulatory barriers for HIV testing and treatment in 53 countries in the WHO European Region, GNP+ have released Barring The Way To Health – Legal and regulatory barriers in Europe. The website is a searchable database which outlines a range of impediments to key populations and other people living with HIV who seek testing and access to care in European countries.

The research by GNP+ (co-funded by the EU 2nd European Health Programme), working in cooperation with EATG, ECUO and many in-country partners and activists shows there is wide disparity in approaches across countries to testing and treatment access. In many places restrictive and outdated practices are hindering the HIV response.

You can use the database to pull out a particular issue that concerns you and compare regulations across Europe, or read more about a particular country. The new site welcomes additional information and amendments.
