Iveta Chovancova is an active member of the outreach work team in the oldest harm reduction organization in Slovakia called Odyseus, which provides services for people who use drugs, street sex-workers and for people living with HIV/AIDS. Iveta has a BA in Therapeutic Pedagogy as well as a BA in Psychology. Recently she has conducted qualitative research on people's experiences on confirmation of HIV-positive status.
Although sustainability of services for people who use drugs is still difficult to ensure, these people deserve much more. Therefore, I want to take the opportunity to actively participate and contribute to protecting the rights of the communities in the region as a whole.
