EMCDDA. EMCDDA webinar: Displaced people and EU preparedness and response — lessons from Ukraine 

Objective: To understand the short- and long-term responses of drug services to a major flux of displaced people and the related challenges.

Background: COVID-19 has raised attention in Europe, and globally, on the importance of monitoring preparedness towards potential emergencies.

Europe was again put to test with the start of the war in Ukraine. The massive flux of displaced people challenged the health services in Ukraine, in its neighbouring countries as well as in the rest of Europe.

The EMCDDA published a preliminary Trendspotter study in July 2022 to investigate the overall situation (an update is planned for 2023).

In this webinar we would like to highlight both sides of the coin: the challenges of a country at war and the responses implemented by the receiving countries. (EMCDDA, Lissabon, 14.12.2022, Video, 01.29.08)

Ukraine's secret weapon - the medics in the line of fire

In southern Ukraine, the city of Kherson has been liberated, but in the east, close to the Russian border, fighting still rages and casualties mount. In a trauma centre under daily Russian shelling, a dedicated team of medics - many of whom volunteered for service at the start of the war - are saving lives. The BBC spent almost a week with them.

EMCDDA. Responding to drug-related problems among migrants, refugees and ethnic minorities in Europe

Migration has had an increasing impact on European policymaking over the past decade, in the wake of what has been called the ‘refugee migration peak’. In addition to an influx of refugees, European countries have experienced relatively new intra-European migration flows, while health and social disparities persist among populations with longer-established migration patterns.

Ukraine Consultation Series

The consequences and brutalities of the conflict in Ukraine are creating unprecedented challenges for mental health professionals providing support and care to people affected by the war.

In response, ISSUP Ukraine, ITTC-Ukraine and the University of California San Diego will lead a series of monthly consultation calls for healthcare professionals working directly with people in or from Ukraine affected by the war.

Experts in helping people through the mental health consequences of mass violence and treating the mental health consequences of trauma will be available to consult on mental health related questions and to provide expertise on dealing with challenging situations.

All the events will be translated into Ukrainian and will follow an interactive format without presentations. The number of participants in each consultation is limited, therefore it is necessary to register in advance. You will then be sent the meeting link via email.

Ukraine: EU Member States will need to prepare for possible increases in drug-service-demand

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022, neighbouring EU countries have ensured a rapid humanitarian response, providing urgent support to meet the health and social needs of those fleeing the country. In a new briefing out today, the EMCDDA looks at how these countries are responding to the needs of displaced persons who use drugs (PWUD) and how they can be better prepared for the future.
