“In Central, Eastern Europe and Central Asia region we are trying not to loose hope for sustainable social and medical help to people using drugs. After all these years of spending public resources mainly for keeping people who use drugs imprisoned, very slow progress in domestic support to harm reduction, multiple cases of human rights violations, it is hard for communities to be still encouraged. That is specifically hard in states with repressive drug policy and criminalization of drug use or possession. With this GF replenishment it is critical to bring catalytic resources for system changes to communities in CEECA. For activists to know they are not alone in advocacy for access to services and human rights protection for people using drugs” – said Ganna Dovbakh,
Eurasian Harm Reduction Association (EHRA).

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.
