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 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.
