The Government of Ukraine prioritized pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) as part of combination prevention for HIV in 2019.1 Since 2020, I-TECH has focused its programmatic efforts in Ukraine on improving PrEP services uptake and strengthening PrEP delivery at selected stat healthcare facilities.
I-TECH further expanded its technical assistance for PrEP from 39 to 107 local high- and low-volume antiretroviral therapy sites throughout twelve regions of Ukraine with the highest HIV prevalence. The overall goal of the program is to establish PrEP as a standard of care among HIV healthcare providers and engage more representatives of most-at-risk populations with PrEP.
