Nos collègues d’ARAS ont lancé un appel ouvert au soutien, de manière à assurer immédiatement un stock de méthadone, soit par des dons, soit par des achats, alors que les livraisons ne devraient pas arriver avant au moins un autre mois. Pour en savoir plus, en anglais, veuillez lire les informations ci-dessous.
In the last weeks, the complicated access to Opioid Substitution Treatment (OST) in Romania has become even more unstable. Normally, from an estimated population 10.000 people who would need access to this service, a maximun of 2.000 places are covered. However, problems with delivery have put at risk this already difficult situation.
As a result, one Antidrug Agency Center has closed, and other organizations are experiencing already the effects of a lack of stock. For example, private organization ANIT has no pills anymore, and ARAS has been forced to halve the ratios of distribution.
Our colleagues of ARAS have launched an open call for support to ensure immediate methadone stock, either in donation, or to be bought, as deliveries are not expected to arrive at least for another month. If you or organization could be of support, please, contact ARAS or Romanian Harm Reduction Network.
