The two days meeting (29-30 June) was devoted to the implementation of harm reduction in prisons in Luxembourg, the problems faced and how these are overcome.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss provision of health care to inmates, with particular reference to: implementation of Opioid Substitution Treatment (OST) and harm reduction measures, continuity of treatment for prisoners who are drug users, are living with HIV or are co-infected with HBV, HCV, TB and STIs. Participants worked in groups to find out what the barriers in the focus countries are and how we can help them to overcome these barriers.
