USAID Health Care Improvement Project (HCI) | Ukraine


URC is assisting Ukrainian partners to reduce alcohol and tobacco use among pregnant women through training and technical assistance for the implementation of standardized counseling protocols known as “brief physician interventions." These interventions are highly standardized, short counseling protocols that take place during an outpatient visit, usually accompanied by patient educational materials. They have been shown to be effective in US studies in promoting cessation of alcohol and tobacco use during pregnancy.
