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.
