HIV prevention, diagnosis and care for Ukrainian refugees in Poland

(…) Ukraine has long had one of the highest disease burdens of HIV of the 53 countries of the European Region. Figures from 2021 indicated that almost quarter of a million Ukrainians were living with the disease, and certain groups, such as drug users, men who have sex with men, and sex workers, are at higher vulnerability and risk of infection, just as everywhere in the world.

The escalation of military operations in Ukraine triggered a large-scale movement of refugees into surrounding countries. In addition to health needs directly caused by the hostilities, including trauma care, significant numbers of refugees required treatment for chronic health conditions, including HIV. (WHO, Genf, 27.12.2022)
