The ESTICOM training material for Community Health Worker (CHW) engaged in work with men who have sex with men (MSM) in Europe was written by Terrence Higgins Trust, London, England (THT) in cooperation with Deutsche Aidshilfe, Berlin, Germany (DAH). The training material was developed in the frame of the ESTICOM project1, which involved nine European organisations in a consortium led by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) in Berlin, Germany. ESTICOM was directed by an Advisory Board which included one representative each from the European Commission2; Chafea3; the HIV/AIDS, viral Hepatitis and Tuberculosis Civil Society Forum (CSF)4; the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)5; the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA)6, and the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS).
The project was funded by the European Union in the framework of the Third EU Health Programme (2014–2020)7
