NGO "Institute of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" organized and conducted training for teachers and cadets of the National Military Medical Academy

On December 10-11, a training on "Counseling and testing for HIV with the use of rapid multitests in the Armed Forces of Ukraine" for teachers and cadets of the National Military Medical Academy took place on the territory of the hotel complex "Pushcha-Lisova".

The event was organized by the NGO "Institute of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" within the program "HIV Prevention in the Armed Forces of Ukraine: testing and counseling, reducing the risk of infection on the battlefield" with the technical support of PEPFAR.

The purpose of the training, which was attended by 17 people, was to determine the level of knowledge of servicemen about the organization and conduct of training, as well as gender aspects of HIV infection; acquainting participants with the basic principles of training for servicemen on HIV counseling; improving counseling and testing skills through practice.

During the event, participants learned to organize and conduct trainings, got acquainted with the requirements for the trainer, as well as trained to conduct practical exercises. In particular, participants trained to make presentations on pre- and post-test counseling, the rights and responsibilities of HIV-infected people, stigma and discrimination, and so on.

With the acquired knowledge, the participants of the training will be able to disseminate the received information and train others, which will contribute to the further fight against the spread of HIV infection in Ukraine.

Drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis will be delivered from the regional level to patients!

The State Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko said that drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis will be delivered from the regional level to patients. This is the first time that such a public-private partnership approach has been implemented under the Safe, Affordable and Effective Medicines for Ukrainians (SAFEMed) project.

Why is this important? Drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and hepatitis, which are purchased at public expense, are now delivered from national warehouses only to the level of regional centers.

As there is currently no single system for delivering drugs to district-level facilities, medicines often reach patients with delays due to logistics. That is why a dialogue and a search for a solution to the issue was launched.

The result that has been achieved is extremely important. This is not just a short-term promotion. The implementation of the project will help solve this problem in the long run. The results of the pilot project will be used to calculate logistics services in order to develop models for further inclusion of such services in centralized budgets and health care packages under the health guarantee program.

In the near future, the SAFEMed project (Management sciences for Health) together with the regional health departments will develop routes for the delivery of necessary drugs for the treatment of HIV, tuberculosis and viral hepatitis from regional warehouses to the level of final recipients.

After that, on a monthly basis, at the expense of the project funds will be provided transportation of drugs in compliance with all necessary standards and temperature requirements.

The purpose of the training, which was attended by more than 15 people, was to determine the level of knowledge of servicemen on counseling and testing for HIV, as well as to improve the skills of counseling and testing through practical training.

During the event, participants listened to theoretical lectures on "Epidemiology of HIV", "Ways of HIV transmission" and "Stigma and discrimination", and after the theoretical part there was a practical development and consolidation of information, including testing with rapid multitests and pre- and post-test counseling on HIV infection.

In addition, during the training process, the participants received comprehensive information on the legal framework in the field of HIV prevention, in particular, regulations of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine on counseling and testing.

The action plan defines clear and specific tasks for the implementation of the Strategy, indicators for them and responsible executors, according to the Ministry of Health.

"Special attention is paid to the issue of rehabilitation and social support of patients with tuberculosis. In particular, it is envisaged to develop an effective mechanism for involving local social protection services, non-governmental organizations and employment centers. That is, the approach to social support and medical rehabilitation of a patient with tuberculosis should be in accordance with individual needs, "said Deputy Minister of Health, Chief State Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko.

According to him, among the priority steps for 2021 are:

  • ensuring continuity of TB treatment and diagnosis in response to challenges associated with coronavirus disease (COVID-19);
