Media attention! The equipment will be transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine

On 5 of September, at 11.00, the transfer of the immunological analyzer "Arkitekt i1000 SR" by Abbott to the Ministry of Defense will take place. The device was purchased for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by the international NGO "International Institute for HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" within the framework of the PEPFAR project.

 

The transfer of the equipment will take place in the laboratory department of the Blood Center of the National Military Medical Clinical Center “Main Military Clinical Hospital” (18 Hospitalna str., Kyiv).

Representatives of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, LTC Charles Hill (Bilateral Affairs Officel), Mr. James Cahill (Medical Advisor, Office of Defense Cooperation), William B. Taylor (Chargé d’Affaires, a.i. of the United States Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine), Mrs. Alice Wolfram (PEPFAR Embassy Interagency Coordinator) were invited to participate in the event.

The recent acquisition of the immunological analyzer "Arkitekt i1000 SR" by Abbott is the latest addition to a reform process. The equipment is already installed and operational. In addition, the manufacturer provided training for professionals who are now working with this unit.

The device is much easier to operate and allows faster, cheaper and more likely to detect hemocontact pathogens than previous manual tests "ELISA" antibodies. Thus, in the future, the number of uncertain and false-positive results will decrease significantly. This detection of contaminated blood is a critical component of all blood safety programs.

We invite the media to join the event. Prior accreditation is MANDATORY. For participation and accreditation please call +38 044 569 28 52. Contact person Dobroskok Larysa, project coordinator.

 

What we will talk about during the roundtable on "Combating HIV infection in the Armed Forces of Ukraine"?

We would like to remind that on September, 9 at 10.00 in the conference hall of the Hotel "ALFAVITO" will be held a roundtable on the topic: "Combating HIV infection in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine". Organizer of the event: NGO "International Institute HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis". The round table meeting will be held within the framework of the PEPFAR project "HIV/AIDS Prevention in the Armed Forces of Ukraine: Testing and Counseling, Reducing the Risk of Infection in the Battlefield".

The following questions will be raised during the round table meeting:

- the epidemic situation of HIV / AIDS in Ukraine and among the military personnel of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine;

- ways to improve the interaction of the medical units of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine on the provision of a package of services to the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with HIV / AIDS on the basis of a patient-oriented approach;

- providing psychological assistance to HIV-infected servicemen, including in the combat zone.

It should be noted that the region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia is the only one region in the world where the number of HIV infections and AIDS deaths is increasing. At an international scientific conference in Mexico City (July 21, 2019), UNAIDS Regional Director stressed that the HIV situation in the region was a serious cause for concern. Current approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of HIV, including the fight against discrimination, are being implemented but the coverage of such programs, the quality of the programs and the impact of such programs are not perfect.

The number of HIV-infected people in Ukraine in the period 1987-2018 was 333.7 thousand people, of which 111 thousand were diagnosed with AIDS; 48, 5 thousand people have already died from AIDS-related illnesses. There are only 142.06 thousand people under medical supervision, which is 49.7% with the target of 90%. One in every hundred citizens between the ages of 15 and 49 is infected with HIV, which is one of the highest rates among countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

The incidence of HIV infection among military personnel reflects the overall situation in society and requires immediate intervention.

 

Happy Independence Day of Ukraine
