Using methadone and buprenorphine may help suppress HIV / AIDS epidemic in Ukraine

Using of methadone and buprenorphine will help suppress the HIV / AIDS epidemic in Ukraine. Such conclusions were made by Yale University researchers. These drugs are used to treat opioid obesity disorders and they have proven effectiveness in preventing HIV transmission. About it writes YaleNews. Currently, only 2.7% of HIV-positive Ukrainians receive methadone and buprenorphine.

Results from a Yale study show that treatment of at least 20% of HIV-positive people with opioid-related disorders can produce positive results. In this way, new HIV infections and deaths in Ukraine can be prevented.

Methadone and buprenorphine use reduce the frequency of injections and the dose of opioids. This, in turn, lowers HIV transmission and prevents overdose deaths.
