  • Description:
    People who use drugs (PWUD), including people who inject drugs (PWID), are marginalized and stigmatized in most societies; and often are at increased risk of acquiring and transmitting HIV, Hepatitis, and other blood-borne pathogens. These populations are hard to reach and often, least able to access and least likely to utilize HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. Therefore, HIV prevention programs need to be developed or tailored to effectively target, reach, and address the particular needs of PWUD.

    International and national organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), the Centre for Harm Reduction, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have developed high-quality materials (e.g., guidelines, manuals, protocols, and training curricula) to guide the provision of HIV-related prevention services to people who use and/or inject drugs. These materials currently exist in many different formats and have been developed with a variety of target audiences and program foci in mind. This toolkit has been developed to serve as a guide to available resources on HIV prevention among drug-using populations.

    The toolkit aims to provide an overview of tools and resources for key, effective interventions and planning programs for PWUD, including designing and implementing programs, monitoring and evaluating program progress and outcomes, and supporting and developing effective drug and HIV policy.

    Persons responsible for guiding, developing, and implementing policy and programs to prevent HIV among drug-using populations including, but not limited to, Chiefs of Party, Country Directors, Ministries of Health, multi-sectoral government staff and professionals involved in HIV/AIDS prevention, members of non-governmental (NGO) and community-based (CBO) organizations, clinicians, and other persons who provide direct services to PWUD.
