|Duration||20 February 2009 - 20 December 2009|
|Project goal and objectives||
The main goal of the project is to ensure that the drug users have access to information on HIV/AIDS and treatment and to reduce the spread of infection.
Implementing the project organization provided almost double amount of individual consultations than in was initially planned, also more than planned people were reached and lectures read. Consultations took place in different places, but most often in Klaipeda Centre for Addictive Disorders or in Anonymous Consultation Cabinet. Consultations were confidential and if needed or requested - anonymous. Clients were also consulted at home and in public places (cafeterias, parks, waiting for a visit to the doctor or during the walk in the street).
During the consultations and self-help groups held through the project period the target group members (drug users and people living with HIV/AIDS) found out more about HIV/AIDS and learned living with HIV/AIDS. This helped to increase client's self-trust and motivated them to improve their life.
