PDF File Size: 1.66 MB | Download   
Although the problem of drug use among women is being increasingly recognized, female drug use related problems do not often show up in research publications or while developing responses on drug use and/or for HIV/AIDS prevention programmes for vulnerable groups. This is partly due
to their limited numbers sometimes and the largely subordinate position of women users in the drug subculture.Recent trends however are indicative of the fact that women are likely to suffer worse consequences than men as a result of drug use. It is therefore important to evolve alternate strategies to identify women with problems related to drug use in order to understand its impacts both from the individual as well as from the gender perspective.More importantly for developing appropriate response, it is prudent to understand the bio behavioural vulnerabilities of female drug users. Female drug users differ from their male counterparts in terms of their background, their reasons for using drugs, and their psychosocial
needs. However, most prevention and care programmes for drug users are not reaching the vulnerable female drug users because services are designed for men. Attempts to reach and work with female drug users are limited and, in fact, gender sensitive services addressing the specific needs of female injecting drug users hardly exist in most countries.
