Our work in Q2 of 2019

Today we would like to provide you with a brief overview of the work of our harm reduction project in a second quarter of 2019.

Within this period the outreach work was conducted 5 days a week, as always in the evenings, by 10 outreach workers, with support of the mobile unit. During this 3 months period the Moscow HR project had served 941 clients (total number of contacts – 1450) and provided 45 411 clean syringes and 8 509 condoms (1900 of them purchased within this project as well). Our outreach workers have conducted 1415 consultations on different health related issues and made 162 HIV rapid tests (of them 16 positive). We distributed informational materials on health and legal issues and a newspaper for drug users. We provided 282 consultation on overdose and distributed 415 ampules of Naloxone - a medicine that prevents the overdose death. Reports on 96 lives being saved by Naloxone were received within the reporting period. Also, within the reporting period 5 case managers took new 13 cases for support and 3 legal consultants provided 87 consultations on legal issues to project participants.
And here is one story illustrating our case management work:
ARF started working with Vladislav in 2018. At the time he became the client of our case management services, Vlad was conditionally sentenced to 3.5 years under Article 228 part 1 and Article 228 part 2 of Russian criminal code and was scheduled for a court hearing. The Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia requested a change of probation period for a real imprisonment for him. ARF delegated the social worker, Slava Matyushkin, to support Vladislav at the court session as a public defender. Thanks to the work of the ARF lawyers, as well as to the work of the case management team, the court decided not to support the petition of the Federal Penitentiary Service and Vladislav remained free. Under the terms of his conditional release, he had to undergo treatment for drug addiction. By that time, Vladislav himself decided to undergo treatment and subsequently undergo a course of rehabilitation. Previously, he repeatedly underwent treatment in drug treatment clinics in Moscow and each time the results were unsuccessful. ARF team together with Vlad decided to seek help from our partners and colleagues from rehab centre in Almetyevsk so that Vladislav could undergo treatment and rehabilitation in the Republic of Tatarstan. Funds were collected to purchase a ticket, and in three days Vladislav has left for treatment. While he was in rehab center, some miscommunication between the Federal Penitentiary Service and the narcologist took place, because the information about Vlad’s treatment related processes was not transmitted in a timely manner. ARF case management team resolved the situation by transferring the information from the clinic to all interested parties. Within three months, Vladislav underwent treatment and rehabilitation, after that he returned to Moscow and continued working with ARF as a volunteer of the harm reduction program. Recently Vladislav was able to find a job, started to attend NA groups but still continues to volunteer with ARF.
