An overview of HIV prevention in central and eastern Europe.
HIV and AIDS present a major challenge to the countries of central and eastern Europe.
The manner in which this is being addressed differs from country to country, depending upon historical traditions and prevailing public health practices, social values and political priorities.
This paper provides an overview of HIV prevention policies in six central and east European counties :
Hungary, the Czech Republic,
Poland and Lithuania.
By homing in on particular aspects of these policies, the paper aims to highlight some of the more interesting contrasts that exist within this region.
The paper concludes that, while significant comparisons can be made between the countries, tight parallels cannot.
