On 6 – 19 September, 2021 Eurasian Harm Reduction Association (EHRA) conducts:
- General meeting of its members to elect 2 representatives from the community of people who use drugs, and
- Regional meetings from the particular regions: Central Europe, Ukraine-Moldova-Belarus, Caucasus, Central Asia.
ATTENTION! Regional meetings in the Central Europe (Czechia, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia), Ukraine-Moldova-Belarus regions will not be held, according to the Regulations of the Steering Committee of Eurasian Harm Reduction Association. Article 8.7. of the Regulations states: “However, if a sole nominee is entering the second term of Steering Committee membership, he/she is appointed without the elections”. In each of above-mentioned regions, EHRA received per one application from current Steering Committee members: Dominika Jasekova (representing Central Europe region) and Ala Iatco (representing Ukraine-Moldova-Belarus region). In this case, both candidates are appointed to be Steering Committee members without elections.
The same rule is applied to the General meeting to elect representatives from the community of people who use drugs. As there are 2 seats in the Steering Committee from the community of people who use drugs and EHRA received 2 applications from which one is from the current Steering Committee member – Vitalii Rabinciuc, he is appointed to be Steering Committee member without elections.
All EHRA members (individual and organizational), who are from the regions, where elections are taking place and who are approved by the Steering Committee, have a right to vote in the Regional meetings. All members who identify themselves as members of the community of people who use drugs have a right to vote in the General meeting to elect Steering Committee member from the community of people who use drugs.
