Addressing the needs of people who use drugs in the context of HIV and co-infection(s) is not just a health issue but also a matter of social justice and human rights. The pursuit of health equity, as enshrined in the SDGs, calls for a comprehensive approach that encompasses harm reduction, integrated care models, and supportive policies.

Services for women who use drugs or opioid substitution therapy. Practical examples for harm reduction and HIV service organisations

This handbook offers concrete suggestions and practical examples of activities for women who use drugs. 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, we have developed them in the form of fact sheets, based on the knowledge and experience of women working in women-specific organisations.

The Policy Paper is a result of a comparative 28-country report conducted by the COBATEST Network in 2022-2023.

Despite their valuable contributions, CSOs providing community HIV testing services encounter several challenges in their efforts to expand community HIV testing: inconsistent legal frameworks non-inclusion in national HIV plans, sustainability and funding, underutilization of data, provider training

To address these challenges and maximize the impact of community HIV testing efforts, the Policy Paper proposes a set of recommendations.
