The purpose of the project
The project aims to ensure equal access to HIV services, as well as services in the fields of sexual, reproductive health and rights for people most vulnerable to HIV, to ensure equal and full rights for key populations, to strengthen the capacity of local organizations that carry out advocacy activities to achieve these goals.
- SMT patients and people who use drugs with a special focus on women
- partners and parents of people who use drugs
Ensuring equal access to social, reproductive and legal services, as well as the creation of a positive image, as parents, is an important stage in the socialization of people who use drugs, especially women. Mobilizing and creating a network of women using drugs will foster the development of women’s empowerment and advocacy at all levels, including the involvement of community leaders in the regional HIV/AIDS coordinating committees. Conducting research on sexual and reproductive health will reveal specific needs in the context of parenthood.
