Public Health 2019

People who use drugs, sex workers, and the LGBT community continue to face discrimination and to have poor access to health services. The Public Health Department of the Soros Foundation-Moldova advocates for policies and practices that promote the rights of persons from groups at high risk of HIV infection and contributes to insuring a better access to health services.

Thus, in 2019 the Department intends:
 
1. to support activities that will contribute to the implementation of alternatives to incarceration measures for drug users;
 
2.  to provide support for independent monitoring of HIV/AIDS prevention services by affected communities with a subsequent presentation of the results to the National HIV/TB Council;
 
3. to support the monitoring of the implementation of the National HIV/AIDS transition plan.
 
Implementing partners: Moldovan Harm Reduction Union and PromoLex.
