Motivating People who Inject Drugs in Myanmar to Adopt Safer Behaviors | 06.04.13

This program brief summarizes PSI/Vietnam's harm reduction interventions among people who inject drugs (PWID). Since 2005, PSI has utilized multiple targeted channels to reach PWID with evidence-based interventions designed to motivate safer injecting practices and HIV testing behaviors. More recently, in 2012, PSI designed the world's first low dead-space needle/syringe (LDSS) social marketing pilot to reduce supply- and demand-side barriers to using safer needles/syringes.

Results described in this report were achieved with support from MSD, Open Society Foundation and USAID.

The Clinical Health Network in China - Helping Mr. Li Lead a Healthier Life | 11.09.12

Mr. Li quit drugs about eight years ago. Since then he has found a job as a security guard, and is enjoying a stable life with his family. He did not feel the need to learn about harm reduction and the prevention of infectious diseases. In early August 2012, Mr. Li met a PSI/ China peer educator who told him that many people who inject drugs are afflicted with HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or other infectious diseases. Some of them had already died. One of the key reasons for this was that they had missed the opportunity for early diagnosis and treatment.
