This event marks the release of a World Bank and World Health Organization review of HIV epidemics and vulnerability among key populations in Europe and Central Asia. The event draws on systematic reviews conducted by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine on behalf of the World Bank to map policy priorities for the region, especially in light of the social and structural factors shaping HIV epidemics. To this end, the event includes a moderated discussion, chaired by Professor Peter Piot, among high level experts and policy makers. The audience of the event includes key policy, research, civil society, and practice stakeholders.
