The goal of the study was to assess the attitude of representatives of three key services (professional groups: health and social workers, as well as police) towards LGBT people in five countries of Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (CEECA). The assessment evaluated two components: respondents’ personal attitudes towards LGBT people and respondents’ assessment of the attitudes of members of their professional group towards LGBT people. An analysis of the attitude towards homosexuality, as such, helps to form a preliminary view of the respondents’ personal attitudes towards LGBT people. The results of the study showed that respondents from almost all professional groups held positive attitudes in all five CEECA countries covered by the study. Only police officers in Kyrgyzstan were an exception to this rule: they hold negative views of homosexuality as a phenomenon. It is also important to note that social workers tend to hold more positive views of LGBT people in comparison with health workers and the police, however, this conclusion is not true for every CEECA country.

Департамент по ВИЧ/СПИДу Всемирной организации здравоохранения (ВОЗ) разработал сводное руководство по ВИЧ-инфекции в ключевых группах населения, включая трансгендеров (2). В ходе разработки было выполнено качественное исследование «Ценности и предпочтения» с участием трансгендеров из разных регионов мира. Целью интервью было удостовериться, что опыт трансгендеров относительно ВИЧ-инфекции и иных вопросов здоровья был учтен, и способствовать улучшению понимания характерных для трансгендеров вопросов ВИЧ-инфекции и здоровья. В частности, интервью были направлены на выявление барьеров и способствующих факторов, наряду с предлагаемыми стратегиями относительно информации по ВИЧ-инфекции, профилактики, тестирования, лечения, доступа к медицинским услугам и другим потребностям, связанным со здоровьем трансгендеров.

The information presented in this review may be useful both for non-governmental organizations and
community activists and for the government, when planning advocacy processes, promoting the rights of
PLWH, gaymen, other MSM, and trans*people and eliminating the barriers hindering their access to services.
The goalof this review is to identifythe legal barriers for people living with HIV, gay men, other men who have sex with men and trans*people in exercising their rights in different areas. To conduct such review, ECOM developed a methodology and a survey questionnaire, which we filled in with the help of our local partners. When analyzing legal practices, consideration was given both to judicial practices and to the information provided by activists, received from the organizations documenting cases of human rights violations and protection of such rights, news in mass media, and reports of non-governmental organizations submitted to the international agencies.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) continue to be at higher risk for negative health outcomes including
HIV, STIs, depression, substance use, suicidality, and anxiety. Associative relationships between homonegativity (internal and external) and these outcomes are used to explain the observed disproportionate impact.

In the past years, we have witnessed some positive developments of the legal environment to combat discrimination based on sexual orientation in the European Union Member States, although a lot still remains to be done. The social situation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, however, continues to be worrying. Homophobic and transphobic hate speech and hate crime are a common phenomenon in the European Union today.
Incidents and violence motivated by hatred against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)
people take different forms: physical violence, hate speech, threats of violence, verbal abuse, etc.
Incidents and violence targeting LGBT people also take place in different places, including public
areas, schools, the workplace, or in the privacy of the home. In other words, homophobic and
transphobic incidents range from homophobic attacks during a Pride, lesbophobic violence in a
public space to homophobic bullying in schools.
The previous Framework Decision was subject to a number of constraints. First of all, it had to be agreed unanimously by the Council (ie, Member States’ justice ministers) and so was not very ambitious. Similarly, the European Parliament was only consulted on its adoption. However, the 2012 Directive was adopted in accordance with the EU’s ‘ordinary legislative procedure’, which means that the Council voted by a qualified majority and the European Parliament had joint decisionmaking powers with the Council.
