Setting the scene: assessing and planning with harm reduction

This report summarises the results of site assessments on HIV and drug use in China, India, Indonesia, Kenya and Malaysia. The assessments were conducted by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and their teams of experts in four technical areas:

  • HIV prevention services for people who inject drugs
  • HIV and drug-related policy and environment
  • Organisational development issues
