Training module and manual was developed in response to drug‑related deaths and overdoses upon release from prison. It aims to increase (evidence-based) knowledge and skills in overdose prevention and management and improve awareness of good practice models. The module relates to the documents, developed within the same project: "Overdose Prevention Services Upon Release from Prison: Estonia, Lithuania, Hungary, Poland and Romania" and “Overdose Prevention Services upon Release from Prison: Best Practices from Scotland, Denmark, Italy and Spain”. As such, these reports should be read in conjunction with the both, the training module and manual in order to enhance understanding, whilst accessing other useful information and research references listed.
This report outlines what is currently known about the population of women who use drugs in the six focus countries as well as the harm reduction services that are available to them. Furthermore, this report develops recommendations based on this data and on a thorough review of the social, political, and economic factors that shape the risks and barriers faced by women who inject drugs. These recommendations identify key next steps to be taken on the local, national, and international levels to build a truly efficacious response to the needs of women who inject drugs, the population suffering the greatest HIV burden in this region.
Since 1 April 2014 the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) has been implementing the three-year Regional Program ‘Harm Reduction Works – Fund It!’, which receives financial support from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund). The goal of the Regional Program is to strengthen advocacy by civil society, including people who use drugs (PWUD), for sufficient, strategic and sustainable investments in harm reduction as HIV prevention in the region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia. An Oversight Committee (OC) established by the EHRN Steering Committee in 2014 oversees implementation of the Regional Program, including the use of financial resources, and provides recommendations for problem-solving and improving implementation. In September – October 2014 the first set of oversight visits was held to countries participating in the Regional Program: Georgia, Kazakhstan, Moldova and Tajikistan. This report highlights the main conclusions and results of these visits.
This is the report of the Consultation on Police and HIV, which took place in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on October 4, 2014. The Consultation was held over one day, Saturday 4 October 2014, in Amsterdam, in conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Law Enforcement and Public Health. The Consultation was able to capitalize on the presence there of many supportive police, civil society and HIV programmes. This Consultation came about as a result of the recognition of a need for co-ordination and collaboration between all agencies working with police in the HIV response, and better planning and sharing of resources and experience. It was convened by the Law Enforcement and HIV Network (LEAHN), and co-organized by the Centre for Law Enforcement and Public Health (CLEPH), the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) and Birkbeck School of Law at the University of London.
