PostSubject: Interesting New/Blogger from the Ukraine   Sat Feb 18, 2012 9:42 am

Ukrainian harm reductions activist and a blogger Victoria Lintsova in an e-mail interview shared with Rising Voice her thoughts and ideas on how blogging helped her and her organization. The most active blogger from the group of activist of Association of the Substitution Treatment Advocates of Ukraine (ASTAU) believes that blogging helps her personality to find a balance and to solve inner conflicts and in the same time it helps her non-profit to achieve results in assisting people living with the drug addiction.

The work of the activists of the Association of Substitution Therapy Treatment of Ukraine is focused on making the lives of the patients of opiate replacement therapy more comfortable, helping them to better integrate back into society. The major problem the substitution therapy patients face today in Ukraine is the fact that the only place where they can receive a medication are special sites where patients have to come every day personally.

Because of the efforts of the Association and other harm reduction NGOs with the support of international organizations, the situation in this area started changing for better gradually. Blogger Viktoria Lintsova reported positive changes in her city of Kirovograd where patients started receiving Methadone in regular hospital. At the middle of October Viktoria posted that the regional health care authorities adopted a new regulations allowing patients to receive opiate replacement medications in other medical establishments.

Thank you Den for sharing this with us. I hope you don't mind that I did add some of what was said in the blog to the forum and I also moved your post to a topic of it's own.
I haven't been able to read all of the blog yet but what I've read so far is quite interesting.
It sounds like some great work is being done with a lot more to come.
Keep us posted please.
Best wishes to you,

Never take any online advice over that of a qualified healthcare provider
