Estonia Has to Step Up Efforts to Combat HIV: Survey

October 20, 2009

The treatment and quality of life of Estonian HIV/AIDS patients is fairly good but could be improved, according to the Euro Index Project of 29 European states. The country needs to address injection drug users, since most Estonians infected are either IDUs or their partners, the EU project said. The report also noted discrimination against those with HIV in schools and workplaces. In Eastern European countries more generally, people with HIV/AIDS face discrimination and stigma, and harm-reduction strategies in prisons are inadequate, the survey found. The report was based on official data, patient interviews and research by the Brussels think-tank Health Consumer Powerhouse.
