From November, 12 to 16, the Alliance for Public Health had training for members of Harm Reduction Academy that arrived from different parts of the world. We exchanged about most effective solutions on HIV response among PWID, integration with other health agendas, financing interventions.

Our participants from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ethiopia, India, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Tanzania, UK represent public health institutes, municipalities, international organizations with a richness of background and experience to help leverage global response to HIV among PWID.

This time we had several participants from Southeast Europe countries who are in the middle of transition of HIV programs from donor funding to national funding — the challenging path that Ukraine is making these days — and we learned from their experiences of successful and not so strategies.
