The COBATEST Network is continuing to expand and now represents 52 community-based voluntary counselling and testing (CBVCT) services across Europe. In 2016, COBATEST members performed 72,049 HIV tests with 1.1% reactive results. In 2016, 37.5% of people tested in COBATEST members reported that the visit was their first time testing for HIV.
To keep all COBATEST members updated we have launched the cobatest.org website.
Cobatest.org will have news from members as well as publishing reports related to the Network. There will also be a section with opportunities for training and grants that could be of interest to our members.
