There are nearly one million drug users in Afghanistan representing 4 percent of the total population. An estimated 14 percent of heroin users are injecting drug users. The wide availability of opiates, unsafe injecting practices, low awareness on HIV and AIDS and commercial sex work are risks in the spreading of HIV and AIDS epidemic in Afghanistan. To learn how to address these issues, a delegation of nine Government officials from Afghanistan comprising of doctors, psychiatrists and officers working for the National AIDS Control Programme, the Global Fund toFight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM), religious leaders of the community and the Director of Women Affairs of a Province, visited New Delhi, India from 18 March to22 March 2010.UNODC arranged a busy schedule for the delegates, who familiarized themselves with various Government of India supported HIV prevention activities in the capital, New Delhi. The delegation also toured care centres set up around the city: (i) the oral substitution treatment drop-in-centre which caters to the health needs of poor drug users (ii) the Navjyoti India Foundation that rehabilitates drug users through homeopathy and counseling and (iii) the Government of India supported organizations in the red light district, which train female sex workers into peer educators to spread messages on prevention of HIV among sex workers and their clients.
