The WHO Department of Global HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexually Transmitted Infections Programmes (HHS) is inviting members of former civil society reference groups for HIV and hepatitis, the WHO advisory group of women living with HIV and community and civil society representatives who have formally engaged with the department in recent years to a virtual exchange of ideas that aims to: 

  • present updates on WHO’s work on HIV, hepatitis and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in 2020;
  • request feedback from civil society and community partners on key issues and questions to be explored at the WHO Strategic and Technical Committee on HIV and Viral Hepatitis (STAC-HIVHEP) scheduled to meet from 28-30 October; and
  • outline ideas for convening a new Civil Society Reference Group in 2021 that also includes a focus on STIs.
