Tytuł: Building Integrated Care Services for Injection Drug Users in Ukraine

Wydane: World Health Organization 2010

Streszczenie: WHO commissioned this report to examine the development of IC services for people with a history of injection drug use in Ukraine, as part of the country’s ongoing response to the HIV epidemic. Following a WHO evaluation of Ukrainian IC programmes earlier in 2009, three sites in Dnipropetrovsk, Kriviy Rig and Simferopol were identified as embodying a high standard of practice from which other programmes may learn. While far from perfect, each has made important progress in IC. The goal of this publication, therefore, is to present these programmes as practical, real world models for other Ukrainian government and nongovernmental agencies that are considering taking on IC services.The author gathered information for this report through interviews with clients and staff of the three IC programmes during site visits in October 2009, and through review of evaluations, project reports and other available materials.
