Abstract: This brief overview of mental health and HIV/AIDS in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Newly Independent States (CCEE/NIS) has been produced by the Global Initiative on Psychiatry as part of a project it is implementing with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands (2005-2008). The project aims to improve the quality of life and reduce the suffering of people with HIV/AIDS who have mental health problems, and of their partners, carers and families, in South Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. It is establishing nine new expert centers on mental health and HIV/AIDS in the region that will collect and disseminate information; run education and training programs for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHA), carers, families and the general population; develop effective ways of dealing with HIV/AIDS-related mental health problems; and act as resource and activity centers.
