AFEW International virtually welcomed medicine students
During the virtual visit, AFEW International told students about its activities in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, including projects such as the Emergency Support Fund for Key Populations and EECA INTERACT, a scientific workshop on HIV, tuberculosis and Hepatitis C.. Students also showed interest in labor migration in Eastern Europe and Central Asia and health issues related to that, such as HIV, TB and health insurance.
UHC is an important direction for AFEW International. Our vision is that all people in Eastern Europe and Central-Asia participate fully and confidently concerning their health and rights, in an inclusive and just society.
Our activities in UHC are aimed to
- Ensure access to health services for key populations at risk for HIV
- Ensure involvement of communities to shape UHC
- Ensure a people-centered approach in health care provision
- Illicit drug policies with a focus on health and human rights
