Background Information: 

On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a devastating attack on Ukraine. In the first weeks, more than five million refugees from Ukraine crossed borders into neighboring countries, and many more have been forced to move inside the country. Refugees and internally displaced people, including those  from HIV key affected populations are especially vulnerable due to the threat of losing access to services and treatment.

According to the United Nations (UN), as of May 16, more than 14 million people are believed to have fled their homes in Ukraine since the war began, including internally displaced people and refugees. More than six million have left for neighboring countries, and eight million people are thought to be displaced inside the war-torn country itself.   

Non-government organizations from Ukraine, as well as regional and international organizations, national community based organizations from host countries, together with Ukrainian public institutions, have organized emergency services to help Ukrainians access treatments in Ukraine and around the world.    

During these 3 months of war a lot has been done to support Ukrainian refugees from among key populations. Different countries and communities have been practicing different approaches with the same goal: provide crucial support and help to those in need, to Ukrainian refugees from among key populations and people living with HIV who were forced to leave their homes. 

Within the frames of this event, we would like to discuss and sum up on what has been done already in regards to supporting Ukrainian refugees from among key populations, to compare the approaches of the countries, best practices and/or success stories, as well as the current gaps and the ways to overcome the barriers. 

On the EECA regional level, APH SoS_Project 2.0, together with partners, has been providing case management support for HIV, TB and OAT patients who are relocating to other regions within Ukraine and to other countries. The unique assistance service named “HelpNow” was created within the first week of the war and began its work on March 01, 2022. This service provides information that helps Ukrainians to get access to ART, OAT, anti-tuberculosis drugs, drugs for viral hepatitis and mental assistance within Ukraine, as well as abroad. The HelpNow Team and partners practice the most patient-oriented approach in order to comprehensively meet the needs of clients. As of now more than 1000 requests from refugees or relocated people have already been coordinated by #HelpNow and this number grows every day.  

In April 2022, Alliance for Public Health together with Alliance Consultancy have launched the project “Response to the emergency situation in connection with the war in order to support internally displaced persons within Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees abroad – representatives of key populations (PLHIV, IDUs, SW, MSM, etc.)” to support the continued provision of services to Ukrainian refugees from key populations moving to other countries. The project plans to respond quickly to emergencies to provide as much technical support as possible in the countries where Ukrainian refugees have moved over the last 3 months to meet the most critical needs of refugees belonging to key populations in terms of HIV / AIDS.  Within the framework of the project the temporary “Ukrainian HIV Support Navigation Hub” – “HelpNow HUB”  was established*.

Ukrainians held an action In the center of Berlin, in memory of people who died of AIDS

An official event dedicated to the AIDs Candlelight Memorial was held on May 15 near the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany.

Representatives of international and non-governmental organizations, both Ukrainian and German, representatives of key communities took part in the action.

“For the first time, we honor the memory of people who died of AIDS during the war, which adds even more symbolism and value to every human life. Today, access to ARVs and not only must be uninterrupted for all patients, this is what our efforts are aimed at, – said Sergii Filippovych, Director of SoS_project, ICF “Alliance fo Public Health”. – There is a large community of Ukrainians and people living with HIV in Germany, and there are even more of them with military refugees. Germany is one of the three European countries where Ukrainian patients migrate most often to seek shelter from February 24, according to our coordinating service #HelpNow. That’s why we supported the #HelpNowHUB program in Emergence, which is already working hard. In Ukraine, the situation remains difficult. Many medical facilities have been destroyed, and access to medical services has been hampered in a number of south-eastern regions of Ukraine due to Russian aggression and the occupation of cities. Many doctors, social workers and other civilians have been killed, and I want to underline the heroism and resilience of Ukrainians today. It’s unbelievable: doctors continue to save lives under bombings, social workers continue to work, deliver medicine on foot or by bicycle to patients, and the incredible work of the volunteer community can be talked about for hours. I would like to thank the Alliance Consulting, our partners in Germany and international partners for supporting Ukrainian patients, supporting Ukraine and the future. We will definitely restore and even improve our country and the medical structure and health care system in particular.”

As part of the event, a memorial exhibition was organized – The Quilt memorial, which commemorated people who died of AIDS. Everyone wrote the names of their relatives and friends who were taken away by AIDS. The event was initiated and coordinated by the Association of Refugees Living with HIV from Ukraine in Germany (the Association).

“We need not only to remember those who died, but also to take care of those who are alive and need our support today,” said Volodymyr Zhovtyak, one of the leaders of the Association and co-chair of ECUO. – That is why We, Ukrainians in Germany, unite as the community and continue to help each other. Ukrainian refugees went through the war, lost their loved ones and need medical, psychological, social, humanitarian assistance, so today we are here for that. Thank you to Germany for your support and to your partners for their cooperation.”

Jens Ahrens of the Berliner AIDS-Hilfe said it was important to think about people dying of AIDS every day. Today, not all people have access to ARV therapy. And it’s worth talking out loud about. According to him, the international community is well aware of the need to combat stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV and representatives of key communities. He said more efforts were needed, especially today, to improve access to HIV treatment and end AIDS deaths.

The participants continued action and marched from the Brandenburg Gate to the Russian Embassy in Berlin, where an appeal was made to the Russian Consulate. “We want to honour the memory of the lost ones and draw attention to the victims of Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine. Because of the war, Ukrainians with HIV were forced to leave their homeland, and faced the problem of meeting their basic needs. Stop yourself, stop your political leaders, because your children will be responsible for this genocide of the Ukrainian people, which is happening in the heart of Europe in the XXI century, “- said the organizers.

“Today is a day of pain for us. We remember those comrades who were with us, who taught us to take therapy, took us to doctors, whom we helped to re-build their lives, cope not only with their illnesses, but also with pressure and repression from the state. This year’s Remembrance Day is unlike any other. Russia’s war against Ukraine has completely turned off the normal life of Ukrainians. We feel this pain. There are 4 people in our organization and we have supported more than 80 people on social support in the last 2 months. These are women, children, elderly people who fled from Russian missiles. People in the 21st century continue to save their lives and we will be happy to help everyone here in Berlin. BerLUN is against the war, We express our support for Ukraine, “said Roman Ledkov, a spokesman for Berlun e-V.

It is an interesting fact that on May 15, 2003 the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in an official appeal to the Ukrainian people recognized the Holodomor as an act of genocide. Therefore, on this day, the organizers of the action also remembered the people who died in the 1930s from the artificial famine created by the Soviet authorities in Ukraine, which killed millions of Ukrainians. The problem of famine and the humanitarian crisis in general in the current situation, in connection with the war waged by Russia, has again become relevant not only for Ukraine but also for the whole civilized world.

The event was organized by the HIV+ Refugee Association of Ukraine in Germany, together with BerLUN e-V., With the support of Berliner AIDS-Hilfe, ICF Public Health Alliance, Eastern European and Central Asian PLHIV Association, Trans-Atlantic Medical Relief Foundation Inc.

HelpNow HUB – A help that can’t wait

On February 24, 2022, russia began a devastating attack on Ukraine. During the next weeks, the escalation of the war forced millions to flee their homes in search of shelters and help.

According to* Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, as of March 31, 5 weeks after the russian attack began, the number of Ukrainian refugees abroad had reached 4 million. 6.5 million Ukrainians have become internally displaced people. And as hostilities continue, those numbers could rise.

“In the crisis situation in which Ukrainians currently live, the role of broad cooperation and support of friendly countries is incredibly important. And we felt the value of such relations in the first weeks of the war, when European neighbors introduced incredible humanitarian aid to Ukrainians who were forced to flee the war, meeting them at the border, introducing social, medical care and others. We have started to develop strategic approaches to the formation of a mechanism for effective response to emergencies within the framework of a regional partnership”, – said Sergii Filippovych, MD, Director of #SoS_project, Alliance for Public Health. – So we have developed an “Guide for Contingency Planning for Key Population HIV Services” which has been shared in the public domain. But that was only the first step. When we found ourselves in a situation of military crisis, we immediately joined in resolving the issues of providing assistance to representatives of key groups of the population, primarily in obtaining treatment and prevention services. With the support of the Global Fund, we have directed part of the funds to the creation and development of a special Emergency Response program to support Ukrainian patients who found themselves abroad due to the war.”

It should be noted that in response to the challenges of the war, the Alliance for Public Health, ICF launched the HelpNow service of emergency coordination and information assistance in obtaining treatment abroad on March 1. And in April, in partnership with the Alliance Consultancy, a broad program “Emergency response in connection with the war to support internally displaced people within Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees abroad amongst the representatives of key populations and PLHIV” (HelpNow Hub) was launched. The Emergency Response program is implemented within the Regional #SoS_Project, with the financial support of the Global Fund.

According to Sergii Filippovych, MD, the focus of the new program was the rapid establishment of communication, exchange of best practices in ensuring the continuity of services for people living with HIV and representatives of key communities, including the further development of digitalization and telemedicine. “In the strategy of the new program, we focused on creating help hubs in the nearest European countries: Moldova, Poland, Germany and a wide range of coordination, social counseling and psychological support services for Ukrainians around the world.”

The main goal of this project is to provide support and assistance to Ukrainian refugees from key population groups moving to other countries and within Ukraine, including access to information resources, navigation of needs and connection to relevant services related to the provision of appropriate treatment (ART, OST, anti-tuberculosis drugs, etc.). The key areas of work are:

  • Information support (preparing and dissemination of information materials about contacts, testing, counseling, adherence to treatment, use of services, support and development of the #HelpNow online service);
  • Support navigation and coordination (rapid assessment of existing services, resources and opportunities provided and available to refugees from Ukraine, including access to important services related to HIV / drug use / hepatitis, as well as more general social and life support) and identifying key gaps. Also, planning work in the country and abroad based on the results of this assessment (information support, creation of additional opportunities for social support, legal support, including relevant procurement and process management);
  • Immediate social (humanitarian) support, based on a rapid assessment of the situation to address certain gaps, on a case-by-case basis, for additional support or management of forwarding among existing relevant services.

“It is very difficult to predict what figures we will see among refugees and internally displaced people in a month or three, given the activity of hostilities and the likelihood of a “second wave”. But the project team clearly aims at continuous and appropriate support for every representative of vulnerable groups who will turn to us for help.” – comments Vlasta Brodska, Director of Alliance Consultancy, Director of this Project as well. “Many people are already familiar with the work of our #HelpNow service, which started almost from the beginning of the war. And we are glad to inform you that more than 900 people have been successfully coordinated since its launch. We are currently working on the development of all areas of the project, first of all – the launch of a navigation center (hub) to regulate major activities in close cooperation with our partners in the countries where most Ukrainian refugees are currently – Poland and Germany***.”

Also, the planned activities of the project include organizing and systematizing information on available support to various organizations and government agencies in countries hosting Ukrainian refugees, providing technical assistance, including the development of alternative communication and coordination channels, online consultations on doctors (“telemedicine”) and further development of the complex HelpNow service.

“Analyzing the existing and potential needs of key vulnerable groups among migrants in host countries, it is worth looking at the situation in more detail. Therefore, the emphasis in the project is not only on the information component, but also on humanitarian aid and the development of shelters for migrants in two regions of Ukraine – Kyiv and Ivano-Frankivsk. Also, in the future we plan to create special emergency funds to cover the needs of Ukrainian migrants.” – adds Vlasta Brodska.

Russia’s aggression threatens public health, human rights and democratic values in Ukraine and around the world. An open letter to the WHO leadership

Representatives of civil society and social networks in Eastern Europe and Central Asia addressed an open letter on the WHO’s response to Russia’s war against Ukraine. They demand that the World Health Organization recognize Russia’s aggression as a threat to public health, human rights and democratic values in Ukraine and around the world, and urge WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Gebreis to visit Ukraine in the coming days.
“WHO and other international agencies’ statements should be carefully considered in the context of a war of misinformation that Russia is leading to discredit Ukraine, lying to the world that Ukrainians are Nazis, – it is said in the letter. – It is very important that appealing to principles of justice, equity and equality – should lead to catalyzing responses in Ukraine, and particularly regarding key populations, and lead to the acceptance of more refugees from Ukraine, and justify doing more to oppose Russian aggression against this peaceful nation”.
The authors of the letter expect that the WHO, in accordance with its mandate, will do more to prepare a national health response to hostilities in the Donbas. Responses should be independent of the contributions of the Russian Federation or other Member States to WHO.
“We, regional and global public health professionals and community and civil society activists, call on WHO to make a strong statement on Ukraine, with clear public health messaging and a bold plan to support people in need and mitigate human suffering that will come with the escalation of the Russian military activities in the Eastern part of Ukraine and Donbas region in particular!
According to the authors of the appeal, the war is expected to intensify in the coming days in the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, and the country still lacks doctors, medicines and basic medical equipment.
“Ukraine alone is not ready to be able to support lives in the East of Ukraine on its own, without an accelerated increase of international assistance in all key areas, – they say. – We respect the technical support provided by WHO regional and country offices who are working hard to support the health response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, but need further actions of the leading global public health opinion shapers to encourage more support and mitigate the anticipated casualties”.

World TB Day Statement Invest to End TB War in Ukraine. Save Lives.

Today is exactly a month since the terrible war in Ukraine started. On 24 February 2022, unprecedented military aggression against the civilian population of our country began. Every day, hundreds of women, children and elderly people are killed and injured in Ukrainian cities and villages hit by the enemy’s air strikes and shelling. Millions of Ukrainians have to leave their homes and seek refuge in the West. Those who are not able to leave, spend weeks in basements and bomb shelters, not suitable for long stay, without proper air ventilation or sanitation; many of them have no electricity, connection, medicines or food…

In these dire conditions, people with tuberculosis (TB) have become even more vulnerable due to the threat of treatment interruption and late diagnosis.

In spite of the danger, our partner NGOs in the regions of Ukraine are doing the impossible! They selflessly continue providing medical and psychosocial support to people with TB: they are reviewing their needs, which have increased greatly during the war, delivering food and hygiene kits and providing people with medicines, which is especially important considering unstable transport connections.

Even in the regions facing a humanitarian crisis, patients with sensitive and drug-resistant TB still receive treatment and humanitarian aid. In occupied Kherson, 332 patients receive therapy and social support on a timely basis and afterwards together with NGO employees go to the rallies against Russian occupation. In Donetsk, Kyiv and Mykolaiv regions, which are under daily artillery shelling and missile attacks, partner organizations supported by Alliance provide support to over 900 patients. They do it in basements and bomb shelters. Many patients had to leave their homes and seek not only refuge but also treatment in other safer regions. For over two weeks, there is no connection with TB patients and social workers in Mariupol. We have no idea if they are still alive.

Alliance is providing humanitarian aid to inpatient hospital departments offering treatment to people with TB on the territories with active hostilities. As for the patients transitioned to outpatient care, they are under medical and psychosocial supervision. To support such patients, Alliance in cooperation with partners developed a mechanism of patient referral and information sharing among NGOs.

Since the first days of the war, together with our partner NGOs in the regions of Ukraine and in cooperation with the Public Health Center we do everything possible to save the lives and health of people affected by TB and their communities. Alliance has been involved in the procurement, arrangement and delivery of humanitarian aid. As well as all our partners in the country, we work round the clock seven days a week to help people during the war, but it may be not enough.

Historically, TB outbreaks have been seen in the times of military conflicts. They happened after World War I and World War II. The same will happen after Ukraine-Russia war! The longer it lasts, the bigger and the more dangerous the new TB outbreak will be.

That is why, recognizing the support of our international partners, who help us in word and in deed in these hard times for our country, we call the international community to make its efforts even stronger! You must increase the pressure of sanctions against the aggressor and scale up the humanitarian support to Ukraine. Let this year’s slogan of the World TB Day be Invest to End TB War in Ukraine. Save Lives.
