EHRN visited the Baltics

«We learned that in Latvia government support for harm reduction programs was not systemic either. City officials may simply ban syringe exchange, as it has happened in Ventspils; or, as in Jurmala, they may refuse to recognize the problem of drug use to avoid scaring tourists away from the major resort.»

Within a year of their series of actions (and also actions by other civil society leaders) the Russian government finally started to purchase ARV drugs.

The number of people living with HIV and hepatitis is on the rise in Europe

There is an urgent need to change our strategy for testing for HIV and hepatitis in Europe. The number of people infected is increasing and many are still not aware that they are infected. The problem is greatest in Southern and Eastern Europe, but it is also an increasing problem in other European countries, and new testing strategies are therefore required. Late diagnosis means a higher mortality rate, greater risk of onward transmission and increased financial costs.

We want it so desperately, so acutely, we can taste it.
