The event brings together 100+ participants from 25 countries.
The main goal of the Forum is to discuss how to ensure the sustainability of health systems in the context of HIV/AIDS in the current context of the region. It is at this very moment that the region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia is going through global changes: the Russian war in Ukraine, humanitarian and economic losses, political instability in Moldova and Georgia, and the reversal of earlier democratic reforms. These developments have a significant impact on the political, economic and social spheres, presenting new challenges and risks.
At the forum, partners share their vision of current problems and needs, and discuss innovative approaches and strategies to overcome challenges. We have brought together the key partners of the #SoS 2.0 project, stakeholders, practitioners and community representatives.
The forum provides an opportunity for dialogue, exchange, communication and collaboration between advocates, civil society and communities. Here they can discuss, plan and coordinate joint efforts to overcome barriers to access to services and ensure sustainability of the HIV response in the region.
The event also aims to educate decision makers from national and regional organisations as well as major donors on the need for a sustainable response to HIV and the creation of supportive environments in the region.
The Forum is organised by the SoS_project 2.0 team and the Alliance for Public Health, with support from Social Equation Hub, #ECECACD, UNDP Eurasia, Eurasian Harm Reduction Association – EHRA, UNAIDS Eastern Europe and Central Asia and financial support from The Global Fund
