ECOM presents report “Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) in Eastern Europe and Central Asia: first lessons to learn”.
The given report presents cases of introducing the pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV in five countries of the Eastern European region, specifically, in Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
The five cases described in this report represent five different processes of initiation and establishing the PrEP services in the countries, which are completely different in terms of the political context, health system’s
organization, HIV epidemiological situation and financial arrangements for HIV prevention programs. Despite of these differences, there are some similarities.
The qualitative research to collect information and to describe the cases has been commissioned by Eurasian Coalition on Male Health (ECOM), international network of LGBT community organizations and other NGOs working in the area of gay men’s, other MSM’s, and trans* people’s sexual health and rights in the region of Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia (CEECA).
