Project PRIDE

Project PRIDE was an innovative research initiative that addressed implementation issues related to HIV, substance abuse, and the criminal justice system in Ukraine and states of the former Soviet Union. Phase 1 involved a number of surveillance activities to examine the burden of infectious diseases and co-morbidity among prisoners, HIV risk behaviors, and HIV transmission within prison, pre-release needs of prisoners with HIV, drug dependence and/or TB. Phase 2 involved a review of Phase 1 findings and critical selection of evidence-based interventions that should be adapted and pilot-tested among prisoners. Phase III involved adaptation and pilot testing of selected interventions.
