The first step in counteracting the spread of infectious diseases is informing

In the Armed Forces of Ukraine are continuing measures to inform personnel of socially dangerous diseases, their symptoms and prevention methods.

Thus, the head of the 740 Regional Sanitary and Epidemiological Department Colonel of the Medical Service, Petro Dichuk, continues to work on the distribution of information and gaming cards and posters among the personnel of the military units of the region. The event is being carried out with the purpose of raising awareness of military personnel regarding socially dangerous infections such as HIV infection, tuberculosis, viral hepatitis B, C and sexually transmitted diseases.

This event takes place with the assistance of the International Public Organization "International Institute for HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis".

Materials developed by NGO "IHATI" continue to benefit!

In order to prevent the spread of HIV, tuberculosis and other socially dangerous diseases among the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the specialists of the 27th Regional Sanitary and Epidemiological Department continue the sanitary and educational work among military personnel of the military units of the territory of responsibility.

Educational materials developed by the international public organization "International Institute of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" jointly with leading specialists of the Preventive Medicine Service of the MODU, as well as personal protective equipment (condoms), were provided to the employees of the medical service of the military units for visual agitation and use in work. In addition, the staff of the medical service held a conversation on the relevance of these problems, reducing the risk of disease and ways to minimize their consequences for the military.

Antiretroviral therapy in Ukraine

In the beginning of 2018, the number of people living with HIV amounted to 0.30% of the total population of Ukraine. Antiretroviral (ARV) therapy can slow down the development of the virus and reduce the harm done to the body.

Below is a reference to statistics on the use of ART in Ukraine:

The total number of people receiving ARV in Ukraine by June 1, 2018

4 GeneXpert MTB / RIF systems for TB diagnostics were transferred to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine

Together, the international public organization "International HIV / AIDS and tuberculosis," Preventive Medicine Service of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the State Institution "Center for Public Health Ministry of Health of Ukraine" in health care institutions of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine recently installed 4 GeneXpert MTB / RIF systems for diagnosing tuberculosis by molecular genetic method.

The GeneXpert MTB / RIF systems were delivered to two mobile hospitals that carry out assignments in the area of the Operation United Force, the National Military Medical Clinical Center and the Military Medical Clinical Center of the Northern Region (Kharkiv).

This became possible thanks to the implementation of a grant from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which was implemented by the State Institution "Public Health Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine".

The molecular genetic method of diagnosis of TB using GeneXpert systems is more sensitive and fast compared with sputum smear microscopy.
