Ukrane. Ukraine rolls out Opioid Agonist Treatment in prisons 

An important step forward in the fight against HIV/AIDS and Hepatis C: Ukraine started rolling out Opioid Agonist Treatment (OAT) in its penitentiary institutions in 2019. The Pompidou Group has supported these reforms by training Ukrainian prison staff on comprehensive drug treatment provision in prisons. Moreover, it funded renovation of a methadone dispensary within a pre-trial detention centre in the city Lviv in the Western region of Ukraine. (Council of Europe – Pompidou Group, 2.-4.02.2021)
