In the Shadows: The Chanura Kol Baseline Study on Women Who Inject Drugs in Manipur, India. India HIV/AIDS Alliance and Social Awareness Service Organisation (2011)

BaselineStudy

Largely neglected in the current HIV strategy in India, women who inject drugs are a highly marginalised and vulnerable population in need of a comprehensive response to meet their health and social needs. The India HIV/AIDS Alliance (Alliance India) in partnership with SASO has initiated a pilot program for women who inject drugs in Manipur, called ‘Chanura Kol’—which means ‘garden of women’ in Manipuri. With support from the Elton John AIDS Foundation, this project provides HIV prevention, drug-related services, and impact mitigation for women in three sites across Manipur – Imphal, Churachandpur and Moreh.

global hivaids response progress report unaids 2011

This report details the findings of the fifth round of the IBBS conducted among 340 male IDUs in the Kathmandu Valley, recruited using Respondent Driven Sampling (RDS).

The test results were provided in coordination with pre- and post-test counseling by a trained counselor in the survey center.
