Advocacy, promoting community health system development and community support

Over the course of ten years, Convictus Ukraine has been actively involved in promoting reform of the criminal executive (probation) service, health care and social policy of Ukraine. Representatives of our organization participate in a number of consultative and advisory bodies, enabling us to influence the formation of state policy, to suggest proposals to local and national programs and other normative documents, including methods of solving problems of key populations and prevent ill-being of people.


Convictus Ukraine implements the following programs in this area:


  • «Safe community  –  shared responsibility».

The project is implemented with the support of the International Renaissance Foundation.
