UNODC Country Programme (2011-2014)
Sub-Programme2: Drug Addiction, Treatment and HIV/AIDS
Sub-programme 2 of the new Country Programme focuses on drug demand reduction and HIV control.
Promotion of a public health prevention approach, protecting individuals, families and communities from drug addiction and HIV will be the theme of sub-programme 2. National drug demand reduction, HIV control and harm reduction programmes will be strengthened through specific scientific-based actions in the areas of drug prevention, treatment and rehabilitation, advocacy, HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care. In all these areas, UNODC work, developed in partnership with a number of national and international partners, will target mainly vulnerable groups. A specific component has been designed to strengthen capacities of NGOs in the areas of drug demand reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention and care. South-South cooperation will also be facilitated through actions that will expose other middle-income countries, as well as developing countries to good practices carried out by national authorities in the I. R. of Iran in opium substitution therapies and HIV prevention and control in the prison setting.
