Sri Lanka Annual Report 2016. National STD/AIDS Control Programme. (2017)

immage

During 2016, a total of 249 HIV cases were newly reported in Sri Lanka. This is the highest number reported in a year since the identification of the first HIV infected Sri Lankan in 1987 and this amounts to about 21 persons newly reported with HIV for a month. However, the reported numbers represent only a fraction of HIV infected people in the country as many infected persons may perhaps not be aware of their HIV status and in addition, stigma and discrimination towards HIV hinders seeking HIV testing services.

As independent bodies with powers to investigate and report on human rights violations, NHRIs have a unique role to stand up for those in need of protection and to hold their governments to account for human rights obligations.


Across the region, their courageous work has helped generate genuine change in many different ways: removing discrimination in laws and policies, improving the practices of law enforcement and government officials, giving vulnerable groups a say in decisions that  affect them, supporting business to develop better ways of operating, and challenging negative stereotypes about marginalised groups.

Mainline Annual Report 2016: 25 Years of Harm Reduction. Mainline. (2017)

immage

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Mainline Foundation, and this provides an opportunity to reflect on twenty-five years of harm reduction.

 

Our mission to reduce the number of HIV infections among drug users through education – the purpose of Mainline’s establishment in 1991 – has been achieved. Or at least the number of HIV infections is no longer on the rise, and most users have a roof over their head. But the fringes of this phenomenon remain. Crystal meth is slowly seeping into the Netherlands. GHB is being quietly used in the provinces. And freebase cocaine dealers are still doing a roaring trade each week when those who depend on drugs receive their allowance from the budget-maintenance service. And abroad, where Mainline is also active, improving the legal status of people who use drugs remains high on the agenda. As always, Mainline operates by going out onto the streets and making contact with our audience, be that at home or abroad. We never do so with a wagging finger, and we’re always ready to lend an ear. In addition, we’ve set out a new strategy this year and reformulated our mission, vision and goals. Everyone is now working even more collectively for a common purpose, and facing the next 25 years with renewed energy.
