Good Practices in "HIV Prevention, Care and Treatment for Female Drug Users, Female Prisoners and Women living with HIV and AIDS in Nepal"
PDF File Size: 19.8 MB | Download   
Since 2008 UNODC has been working in Nepal with Women who inject drugs (WID), Women who use drugs (WUD), female prisoners and women living with HIV and AIDS (WLHIV) in an innovative project that has pioneered approaches to meeting women’s special needs for programmes and services. UNODC activities and interventions include advocacy, capacity building and implementation support for services and interventions to address the HIV risk and vulnerability as well as the various forms of stigma that drug using women face on a daily basis.
Being an innovative project, UNODC considered it useful to commission a study which would allow to draw conclusions on the basis of the evidence of the practices of the project. The study, conducted in 2010/2011, gathered data on female drug users which were combined with observation and anecdotal evidence and thus allowed to develop a clear and comprehensive picture of the good practices that have evolved within the project. UNODC hopes that this guide does not only provide the sufficient argument to allow for the continuation of the project’s good course, but also that it be expanded, extended and replicated in other settings, for the benefit of all such vulnerable women, their families and the communities in which they live, in Nepal and maybe elsewhere.
