The CSFD met in plenary session with the Civil Society Forum on HIV, Hepatitis and Tuberculosis on 7th November to discuss common interests and potential areas of collaboration. It was the first time the two civil society fora have met formally, and CSFD extends it’s thanks to the members of CSF HIV for the meeting, and also to the staff of DG-HOME and DG-SANTÉ for their support in organising and hosting the meeting. The meeting between the two CSFs took place on the last day of a busy session for members of the CSFD which also included a conference on civil society involvement in drug policy (on 5th November) the annual CSFD plenary session (6th November) and a meeting with the Horizontal Group on Drugs.
