The study’s original aim was to understand how the COVID-19 pandemic affected mental health, substance use and intimate partner violence among gay men who take pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention in Ukraine.

We identified a high rate of depression and anxiety symptoms as well as increase of substance use behavior and intimate partner violence. We anticipate a continuing increase of these trends, and an acute need to address those, in the near future as a result of the war of Russia against Ukraine.

This Policy Brief aims to identify key policy implications and suggest recommendations for Ukrainian authorities, international donors and organizations, and Ukrainian non-governmental organizations (NGO) in order to strengthen existing and establish new services to address the health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in Ukraine.
