WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF THE EECAAC2014!

Handling Assistant Prime Minister RF Onishchenko participants EECAAC

Dear Participants of the Past and Future Eastern Europe and Central Asia HIV/AIDS Conferences!

The region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia shows considerable improvement in its fight against contagious diseases.

This improvement was encouraged by the wholehearted support from the partner countries, donor countries, professional and civil communities, as well as by the strengthening of position of the Russian Federation as a regional donor and growth of responsibility of the region for the program fulfillment.

Definitely, the most important stages in the question of consolidation of the activities in the region are Eastern Europe and Central Asia HIV/AIDS Conferences.

Unfortunately, the region still has to face various threats to public health, such as the growing number of people with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis with extensive drug resistance, and hepatitis. During the 4th Eastern Europe and Central Asia HIV/AIDS Conference that was held in May 12-13 in Moscow, we have defined the problem that will be up-to-date for the region for approximately 10 years - it is the widespread of HIV/AIDS, i.e. the fact it now affects not only the most vulnerable groups, but reaches the whole population.

The above problem forces us to change the paradigm of our fight against HIV/AIDS that used to be centered around the question of how to withhold the epidemic within small groups.

The changes in the paradigm must lead to effective control over the epidemic, improved integration of population in the prevention system, as well as in the systems of treatment and support of people with HIV/AIDS, and the most effective use of available resources.

Pleading for an international dialog and discussion of the HIV/AIDS problem in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, I would like to warn everybody against self-isolation and discussion of the regional aspects of the fight with the epidemic without participation of the region itself. A bright example of such destructive approach that is futureless for the people affected by the epidemic is a special session arranged by Kazachkin M., the Special Representative of the Secretary-General of the UN on HIV/AIDS in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, during 20th International AIDS Conference and devoted to our region. Unfortunately, our region did not participate in the session; moreover, results of the regional conference held in Moscow were not even discussed during the session.

In May 2016, the largest forum on the questions of HIV/AIDS in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, i.e. Moscow HIV/AIDS Conference, will celebrate its 10th anniversary.

We’ve already began the process of Conference preparation, and quite soon, we will launch a unique platform on the official website of the Conference where anyone who wants to participate in the process or already does it can get actively engaged in a dialogue, help us define and discuss urgent questions, develop the program of the upcoming Conference, and simply network.

I am positive that the region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia with its excellent scientific and human resources and one coherent strategy will be able to cope with the task of fighting against contagious and other diseases and will be able to become an example for other countries.

I invite you to take part in our project and get engaged in the process with your heart and mind open to cooperation. Thoughts and ideas of every individual are more than important when it comes to preparation of the Conference and development of our strategy of dealing with the challenges we face today.
