A new Study developed by REG: “Ukrainian Refugees in European Countries: Barriers, Solutions and Best Practices. Access to HIV and Tuberculosis Care”
Regional Expert Group on Migration and Health is pleased to share its new study “Ukrainian Refugees in European Countries: Barriers, Solutions and Best Practices. Access to HIV and Tuberculosis Care”.
In this publication, the authors aimed to analyze the barriers in access to HIV and tuberculosis (TB) treatment services, which refugees are facing in the host countries and describe the ways to address such barriers. From the very beginning, the project was planned and implemented with the engagement of community.
The study was a combination of a desk review with data collection and analysis using qualitative methods. The desk review included analysis of the specific approaches used to arrange health care for refugees in six host countries, which had been selected taking into account the differences in their health systems. 68 interviews conducted both directly with service recipients — refugees from Ukraine in need of HIV and TB treatment services — and with health experts who helped to arrange health services.
