HealthRight Receives £500,000.00 ($792,000 USD) to Improve Health Outcomes for Vulnerable Adolescent Girls in Ukraine

In June 2012, HealthRight International was awarded £500,000 grant to improve the lives of vulnerable and hard to reach girls and young women in Ukraine who are affected by HIV, homelessness and instability.  Together with partners, HealthRight will establish two halfway houses in Kyiv and Donestsk, Ukraine, for street girls and their young children.  HealthRight will also strengthen existing services, build provider capacity and seek the sustainability and replicability of these models over the three year grant period.
