Integrated Biological- Behavioral Surveillance among Most-at-Risk Groups in Indonesia, 2007: Surveillance Highlights- Injecting Drug Users. Department of Health, Statistics Indonesia, USAID, et al. (2007)

Integrated Biological- Behavioral Surveillance among Most-at-Risk Groups in Indonesia, 2007: Surveillance Highlights- Injecting Drug Users. The Department of Health Indonesia, The National AIDS Commission, Komisi Penanggulangan AIDS, et al (2007) Injecting drug users (IDU) are particularly vulnerable to transmission of HIV because sharing contaminated drug injecting equipment transmits the HIV virus more efficiently thananyothermodeoftransmission. Sinceinitialdataindicating19%prevalenceamong IDU in 1999, HIV prevalence has been consistently rising in this population sub-group. and represents the highest prevalence of HIV among identifiable population sub-groups in Indonesia. This summary presents key findings of the IBBS 2007 from two (2) cities from which only behavioral survey data were gathered (Semarang and Malang) and four (4) cities from which both biological and behavioral data were gathered (Medan, Jakarta, Bandung, and Surabaya). Official estimates for 2006 indicated there were 190,000 - 248,000 IDU in Indonesia in that year.

Maldives Drug Control Master Plan 2006-2010. National Narcotics Control Bureau and UNODC (2007)

Maldives Drug Control Master Plan 2006-2010. National Narcotics Control Bureau and UNODC (2007) Drug abuse is a complex and multifaceted problem facing the whole nation, cutting across all age groups and social strata. Hardly a community or a family is free from its harm- ful effects. In 2003, a Rapid Situation Assessment (RSA) revealed the seriousness of the situation and prompted the elaboration of this national master plan for drug control. Based on in- formation from about 4,000 individuals, the RSA revealed that the most common drugs of initiation were heroin (43%) and cannabinoids (34%). The most commonly abused drug during the month preceding the survey were opioids (76%) and cannabinoids (12%).

Prevention of Transmission of HIV among Drug Users in SAARC Countries : Legal and Policy Concerns Related to IDU Harm Reduction in SAARC Countries. UNODC, DFID and AUSAID (2007)

Prevention of Transmission of HIV among Drug Users in SAARC Countries : Legal and Policy Concerns Related to IDU Harm Reduction in SAARC Countries. UNODC, DFID and AUSAID (2007) In the last two decades, countries belonging to the SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) region have seen a dramatic increase in the prevalence of HIV and of injecting drug use. As a result, HIV/AIDS control authorities have implemented harm reduction measures including condom promotion and needle syringe exchange. In view of the positive international experience and some success in countries in South Asia, a need was felt to replicate and expand harm reduction measures. A question has naturally arisen whether these measures are within the bounds of national laws or whether the national laws hinder them and, if so, what can be done about them. This is the broad focus of this document.
