EU experts shared their experience and knowledge with the medical staff of penitentiary institutions in Turkmenistan on treatment of drug dependent disorders in prisons

Two experts from Germany conducted a two-day training workshop for fifteen medical professionals, representing the penitentiary system of Turkmenistan.

The training focused on the international standards of treatment, harm reduction and medical ethics in prisons.

The trainers also provided information on new psychoactive substances, drug dependency, and national and international experience in the prevention of HIV, hepatitis and tuberculosis in prisons.
