Good practice guide: HIV and drug use
15 July 2010
The HIV and drug use Good practice guide is aimed at people who are developing and delivering HIV and harm reduction programmes or services at a community level in resource-poor settings. It is also relevant for people working where there are low levels of capacity or political support for harm reduction programmes.
It aims to support the scale up of community-based HIV and harm reduction programmes in developing and transitional countries. It looks at practice and research and also sets out an approach to programming at the community level where communities are fighting poverty, rapid social change, inequality and sometimes restrictive political cultures.
The guide distils some of the important findings, concerns, issues and considerations found to be effective in many settings. It will also support HIV programmers to think through these considerations and apply them to their own setting.
The guide is also available in Chinese and Arabic.
This guide is one in a series of Good Practice Guides produced by the Alliance. This series brings together expertise from our global community-level HIV programming to define and guide good practice in a range of technical areas.
