On Wednesday, November 9, 2022, a meeting of national and regional coordinators of the REAct system was held. Implementers from countries in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region meet regularly online to share experiences in documenting and responding to human rights violations among members of vulnerable groups.
The call was attended by representatives of organizations that coordinate the work of the REAct tool: in Georgia – the Georgian Harm Reduction Network, in Moldova – the Positive Initiative, in Kyrgyzstan – the Soros Foundation-Kyrgyzstan, NGO “Partner Network”, in Tajikistan – “SPIN-Plus“, in Uzbekistan – Ishonch VA Khayet, in Ukraine – Alliance for Public Health, Balkan Region – Regional TB and HIV Community Network in South-East Europe (RTB&HIVCN).
