Active Help Organization | Activities

The primary goal of this project is to enhance the quality of services available to female injecting and non-injecting drug users (including those involved in sex work and spouses of male injecting drug users) in the community by improving female access to existing harm reduction services and developing new female-specific services and effective referral systems to female health service providers. The services include the establishment of gender-sensitive drop-in-centre, mobile services exclusively devoted to accessing female IDUs/DUs, at-risk spouses of male IDUs and families of HIV positive IDUs.

                                                                                                            

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

Develop different strategies to make issues about female drug use and available services known to females and focus publicity on sites where females are likely to be found e.g. hospital outpatient departments, antenatal clinics, reproductive health clinics and NGOs working with sex workers with drug abuse problems.
