Handbook on Services for Women Who Use Drugs

Today, on the Harm Reduction Day, AIDS Action Europe presented the Handbook on Services for Women Who Use Drugs.

This handbook offers practical examples for creating specific activities for women who use drugs or opioid substitution therapy. It can also just serve as inspiration for other types of initiatives and projects. The aim is to increase the uptake of services by women who use drugs in the medium term.

To make these suggestions for specific activities as practical as possible, authors have developed them in the form of fact sheets, based on the knowledge and experience of women working in women-specific organisations.

The handbook was initially developed by Deutsche Aidshilfe and translated into English and Russian by AIDS Action Europe.
