The HIV/AIDS Civil Society Forum is composed of NGOs and other civil society organisations from EU Member States, Candidate and accession countries, EEA countries, and selected countries belonging to the European Neighborhood Policy area.
The aim of the Forum is to facilitate and improve the exchange between civil society organisations across Europe and to support the HIV/AIDS Think Tank and DG SANCO on matters related to the response HIV/AIDS. The CSF meetings are organised twice per year in close co-operation with the co-chairs, currently representatives of AIDS Action Europe (AAE) and the European AIDS Treatment Group (EATG).
