Message from the new President, Manuel Battegay
First, I would like to welcome the newly elected Regional Representatives who joined us at our first General Assembly in Glasgow, on 12 November 2012. I would like to warmly thank Peter Reiss whose relentless dedication to the Society has led us to where we stand today, and I welcome the new colleagues who have joined the EACS Bureau, effective as per today.
On 1 December, we remember the many millions of people who have died from HIV/AIDS. Enormous progress has been made and most patients in Western Europe now lead an almost normal and fulfilling life. However, late presentation to care, access to treatment and good standard of care are still problematic in many countries, even in Europe. The financial crisis is having an additional impact, including in the European Union.
Our thoughts are with our patients, and with their physicians and nurses struggling to do their best despite difficult situations. We have challenging years ahead. Constructive collaboration with all partners will help us face these obstacles.
