The work of EHPV and Baltic HUB were presented as best practices during “Summer School on Migrant Health in Eastern Europe and Central Asia”.
We had the incredible opportunity to participate in the “Summer School on Migrant Health in Eastern Europe and Central Asia” held in Yerevan, Armenia on August 21-22, 2023. This event, organized by Regional Expert Group on Migration and Health (REG) was aimed to delve into demographic and sociological research methods, focusing on assessing the health needs of displaced individuals, migrants, and refugees in the EECA region, as well as on discussing the best practices and the package of services for Migrants in EECA.
We had the privilege to present our work during session focusing on “Best Practices for Serving Key Groups Among Migrants and Refugees.” The project Manager of EHPV – Armen Aghajanov showcased the remarkable work of BALTIC HUB and EHPV in supporting refugees from Ukraine, especially those from the HIV+ and LGBT communities.
BALTIC HUB is a regional coordination center that unites HIV and LGBT organizations in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland. Their services include access to medicines, social support, health insurance consultation, psychological aid, and more. They’re expanding to include Norway, Poland, and Ukraine.
We are immensely grateful for this opportunity to present such a transformative initiative. The Summer School showcased the power of collaboration and innovation in addressing healthcare challenges among migrants. Let’s continue working together for a healthier and more inclusive future! 💪
