"HIV in Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Still Far From Zero" – AFEW Releases its 2012 Annual Report

Published: August 14, 2013

 AIDS Foundation East-West is pleased to release its 2012 Annual Report titled “HIV in Eastern Europe and Central Asia: Still Far From Zero”. In this report we communicate the urgency of attention, both political and financial, that is needed in the region to inhibit the spread of HIV. Eastern Europe and Central Asia is the only region in the world where HIV incidents continue to climb, already reaching 1.5 million people. In this region, fewer than 50% of people who use drugs, sex workers and men who have sex with men have access to HIV testing. 

In this report we highlight some of our project results. We are particularly proud of our ground-breaking projects for prisoners. Our activities aim to improve responses to HIV in prison systems, and they span the full continuum of prevention, treatment, care, and support. The report also gives a glimpse into the work of a women’s initiative in Tajikistan which, with help from AFEW, evolved into a full-fledged NGO that now also works with people who use drugs.  
Lastly, we call upon your financial help for us to continue our life-saving projects. Your contribution is vital, because the groups that we represent are so often overlooked in lists of good causes, corporate charity budgets and national development programmes.
