A few weeks ago the City Council of Sebastopol, Ukraine, banned the implementation of methadone substitution therapy programs. During the last two weeks two other Ukrainian cities have discussed also banning these programs. In response, organizations advocating for the needs of those with drug addictions have produced a public awareness video.
The Drop-In Center's Web newsletter "Motilek" recently published a story of a young woman named Lena, who was released from a correctional facility a few months ago and is trying to break her drug habit and change her life.
Ukrainian HIV/AIDS public awareness Web site “ZAPYTAY,” which was developed and is maintained by Rising Voices grantee Drop-In Center, has published an article about a pilot harm reduction project in Kazakhstan.
