As an epidemiologist, Liudmila Trukhan took part in the development and implementation of the first harm reduction program in the Republic of Belarus in 1997. Since 2000, she has been working as a manager of the harm reduction program in Soligorsk city which was recognized by UNAIDS as one of the best prevention practices reaching out to injecting dug users. Currently Liudmila is Coordinator of the outreach program for the injecting drug users within the grant by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

As a member of the EHRN Steering Committee, I will advocate for the implementation of a comprehensive approach to quality HIV prevention services for injecting drug users and securing the institutionalization of harm reduction activities in the region by taking part in the decriminalization of drug- related policies.
