India: Awareness through movies and music on World Drug Day
The following are the publications launched by UNODC on 25 June 2012, the eve of the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
UNODC is a technical partner for the implementation of the Global Fund Round-9 IDU- HIV Project (i.e. HIFAZAT) in India. UNODC's role broadly involves offering support for capacity building, strengthening and scaling up of services for IDUs through the National AIDS Control Program. In doing so, UNODC provides technical assistance to the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) by generating evidence, developing quality assurance materials and building capacity to respond effectively to the need of drug users through the national programme. This aspect of UNODC's technical assistance in India is being executed as a part of UNODC's regional strategy in South Asia aimed at preventing transmission of HIV among drug users in SAARC countries.
Standard Operating Procedures
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Regional Office for South Asia (UNODC ROSA), is implementing a joint UN HIV/AIDS programme in Northeast India. UNODC's role in this context is to contribute to the national response in reducing the risk and impact of HIV/AIDS particularly in four states of Northeast India, namely Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Meghalaya. This study is an effort by UNODC to assess, identify and prioritize critical barriers for Injecting Drug Users in Northeast India that impede their access to a comprehensive package of services.
