Feedback of our students:
“Being on this course was really helpful to understand how this programme is operating and the needs of injecting drugs users in the other parts of the world. We hope to be able to help them, to optimize the responses better, knowing their needs. I think over the years one of the big problems in harm reduction field`s heads is that the supplier does not understand what is going on and why, and this course would be a great course for anyone who is working in harm reduction anywhere in the world.

“I enjoyed the most innovative, initiative-driven intervention approach, for example, peer-driven intervention, self-testing, community initiated ART interventions. When we return to our countries we will replicate all these innovative approaches.”

“My coming to Ukraine to Harm Reduction Academy has opened my eyes, because in Tanzania the harm reduction programmes are very limited. When I go back to Tanzania, I will approach the authorities responsible for different harm reduction projects to initiate discussion aimed to establish the harm reduction programmes based on the references I have seen in Ukraine. I am very impressed with harm reduction work in Ukraine.”
Rustika Tembele, Tanzania, Open Society Initiatives for Eastern Africa

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
